About her character, Mary, mother of Jesus

Mary was a teen mom in a time when it could have cost her everything. Because of the culture she lived in, she could have been disowned by her family or even killed. Many believe that an angel approached her with a message: she was going to give birth to a baby who would save the world.

Far away from home when it was time to deliver, she had no delivery room, and was forced to give birth in a barn.

What was it like to be the mom of Jesus; to know that he would one day change the world? A writer once said that Mary’s heart would be stabbed by sorrow. Did she “die every day”, as she saw Jesus’ enemies rise up against him? Eventually, those enemies killed him and she was there, watching.

Christians have long honored Mary for her conviction, faithful mothering of Jesus, and transcendent love.
