Queen of saints
Mary was born the only child of Saint Anne and Saint Joachim. As a young girl, she entered the Temple and took a vow of virginity. Mary was visited by the angel Gabriel who told her that she would become the Mother of Jesus. She trusted God, married Joseph and gave birth to Jesus in a stable in Bethlehem. She was a loving mother and was with Jesus at the foot of the cross. Mary has appeared to thousands of people all over the world. The feast of her Assumption into heaven is celebrated on August 15th.
