Miracles of Mary

 This page is dedicated to learning more about

Mary, the Mother of Jesus,

and the miracles that surround her.


In the New Testament of the Bible in the book of Luke, we are introduced to Mary and learn she is the Mother of Jesus. I have used the book of Luke because he was a Physician.  Truth and detail was very important to him.  I encourage you to read Luke:1-2 in its entirety.  It may touch your heart with the miracles of love for us all.  I will provide only those references that pertain directly to Mary, and Jesus, our Savior.  


Beginning with Luke 26b we read:

God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, al village in Galilee, to a virgin named Mary.  She was engaged to be married to a man anmed Joseph, a descendant of King David.  Gabriel appeared to her and said, "Greetings, favored woman!  The Lord is with you!

Confused and disturbed, Mary tried to think what the angel could mean.  "Don't be frightened, Mary", the angel told her, "for God has decided to bless you!  You will become pregnant and have a son, and you are to name him Jesus.  He will be very great and will be called the Son of the Most High.  And the Lord God will give him the throne of his ancestor David.  And he will reign over Israel forever; his Kingdom will never end!

Mary asked the angel, "But how can I have a baby?  I am a virgin."

The angel replied, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you.  So the baby born to you will be holy, and he will be called the Son of God.  What's more, your relative Elizabeth has become pregnant in her old age!  People used to say she was barren, but she's already in her sixth month.  For nothing is impossible with God."

Mary responded, "I am the Lord's servant, and I am willing to accept whatever he wants.  May everything you have said come true."  And then the angel left. 

A few days later Mary hurried to the hill country of Judea, to the town where Zechariah lived.  She entered the house and greeted Elizabeth.  At the sound of Mary's greeting, Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.

Elizabeth gave a glad cry and exclaimed to Mary, "You are blessed by God above all other women, and your child is blessed.  What an honor this is, that the mother of my Lord should visit me!   When you came in and greeted me, my baby jumped for joy the instant I heard your voice!  You are blessed, because you believed that the Lord would do what he said."

Mary responded,

"Oh, how I praise the Lord.  How I rejoice in God my Savior!

For he took notice of his lowly servant girl, and now generation after generation will call me blessed.

For he, the Mighty One, is holy, and he has done great things for me. 

His mercy goes on from generation to generation, to all who fear him.

His mighty arm does tremendous things!  How he scatters the proud and the haughty ones!

He has taken princes from their thrones and exalted the lowly.

He has satisfied the hungry with good things and sent the rich away with empty hands.

And how he has helped his servant Israel!  He has not forgotten his promise to be merciful.

For he promised our ancestors - Abraham and his children - to be merciful to them forever."


Luke 1:67-75 is part of Zechariah's Propehcy about Jesus as royal Savior:

Zechariah, was filled with the Holy Spirit and gave this prophecy:

"Praise the Lord the God of Israel, because he has visited his people and redeemed them.  

He has sent us a mighty Savior from the royal line of his servant David, just as he promised through his holy prophets long ago.

Now we will be saved from our enemies and from all who hate us.  

He has been merciful to our ancestsors by remembering his sacred covenant with them, the convenant he gave to our ancestor Abraham.

We have been rescured from our enemies, so we can serve God without fear, in holiness and righteousness forever...."


We continue with Luke 2:1b 

...Augustus, decreed that a census should be taken throughout the Roman Empire.  (This was the first census taken when Quirinius was governor of Syria.)  All returned to their own towns to register for this census.  And because Joseph was a descendant of King David, he had to go to Bethlehem in Judea, Davids's ancient home.  He traveled there from the village of Nazareth in Galilee.  He took with him Mary, his fiancee, who was obviously pregnant by this time.  

And while they were there, the time came for her baby to be born.  She gave birth to her first child, a son.  She wrapped him snugly in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the village inn. 

That night some shepherds were in the fields outside the village, guarding their flocks of sheep.  Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord's glory surrounded them.  They were terribly frightened, but the angel reassured them.  "Don't be afraid!" he said.  "I bring you good news of great joy for everyone!  The Savior - yes, the Messiah, the Lord - has been born tonight in Bethlehem, the city of David!  And this is how you will recognize him:  You will find a baby lying in a manger, wrapped snugly in strips of cloth!".  

Suddenly; the angel was joined by a vast host of others - the armies of heaven - praising God:

"Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace on earth to all whom God favors."

When the angels had returned to heaven, the shepherds said to each other, "Come on, let's go to Bethlehem!  Let's see this wonderful thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about."

They ran to the village and found Mary and Joseph.  And there was the baby, lying in the manger.  Then the shepherds told everyone what had happened and what the angel had said to them about this child.  All who heard the shepherds' story were astonished, but Mary quietly treasured these things in her heart and thought about them often.  The shepherds went back to their fields and flocks, glorifying and praising God for what the angels had told them, and because they had seen the child, just as the angel had said.


Reading further in Luke, I am including more of the story, so that you fully understand the importance of who Mary was as the Mother of Jesus, our Savior. 

Eight days later, when the baby was circumcised, he was named Jesus, the name given him by the angel even before he was conceived.  

Then it was time for the purification offering, as required by the law of Moses after the birth of a child; so his parents took him to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord.  The law of the Lord says, "If a woman's first child is a boy, he must be dedicated to the Lord."  So they offered a sacrifice according to what was required in the law of the Lord - "either a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons."

Now there was a man named Simeon who lived in Jerusalem.  He was a righteous man and very devout.  He was filled with the Holy Spirit, and he eagerly expected the Messiah to come and rescue Israel.  The Holy Spirit had revealed to him that he would not die until he had seen the Lord's Messiah.  That day the Spirit led him to the Temple.  So when Mary and Joseph came to present the baby Jesus to the Lord as the law required, Simeon was there.  He took the child in his arms and praised God, saying,

"Lord, now I can die in peace!  As you promised me, I have seen the Savior you have given to all people.  He is a light to reveal God to the nations, and he is the glory of your people Israel!"

Joseph and Mary were amazed at what was being said about Jesus.  Then, Simeon blessed them and he said to Mary, "This child will be rejected by many in Israel, and it will be their undoing.  But he will be the greatest joy to many others.  Thus, the deepest thoughts of many hearts will be revealed.  And a sword will pierce your very soul."

Anna, a prophet, was also there in the Temple.  She was the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher, and was very old.  She was a widow, for her husband had died when they had been married only seven years.  She was now eighty-four years old.  She never left the temple but stayed there day and night, worshipping God with fasting and prayer.  She came along just as Simeon was talking with Mary and Joseph, and she began praising God.  She talked about Jesus to everyone who had been waiting for the promised King to come and deliver Jerusalem.

When Jesus' parents had fulfilled all the requirements of the law of the Lord, they returned home to Nazareth in Galilee.  There the child grew up healthy and strong.  He was filled with wisdom beyond his years, and God placed his special favor upon him.


Who is Mary?

Mary is the mother of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.


What do we know about Mary?

She considered herself a humble, willing, servant of God.  God considered her favored, and blessed her by allowing her to give birth to our Savior.  She received this miracle.

We know she must have been a wonderful Mother to have raised such a wonderful son.

We know she was honored by her son because of his respect for God and God's commandments.

We know, based on documented history, many miracles have occured through faith and belief in her as Mary, Mother of Jesus.

She points the way to Jesus, Messiah, Lord, Savior for the world.  Her goal is that of God's, that all should believe in and receive salvation through Jesus.


Worldwide Views

The Catholics have almost always been devoted to her and uplifted her with God, Jesus and Holy Spirit.  The Protestants began many years later.  Even Martin Luther clung to her.  And the Muslims believe in her.  God found favor with her and blessed her...surely we should do the same out of respect that she is Jesus' (our Savior's)  mother. 


Should we pray to Mary?

It's more like 'can we'.  We can.  Scripture tells us to pray to the saints...saints means all of God's children in heaven or on earth.  To confess our sins one to another.  To pray believing we will receive.  [Remember: God's children are those who believe in him and obey him.]


The Miracles

Prayers have been answered when people have prayed to her...believing...just like when people pray to God and Jesus and Holy Spirit.

She appears with and without speaking.

She is heard with and without appearing...just like hearing from God and Jesus and Holy Spirit.

Visions of her occur, which is different than her appearing.

There are unexplained occurences associated with belief in her like the sun 'dancing', and rosaries  turning gold from silver and visa versa.  Statues of her bleeding and pictures of her crying.  And the scent of roses occurring without roses being near.  And roses blooming on bushes in the dead of winter and wells of healing water erupting from the ground.  There are so many different types of occurrences; too many to document here.  


Where does Mary appear?

She can appear anywhere.  To you or to many.  I will add some links as time goes on to various places where she has or is appearing.  To name a few, France, America, Mexico...in fields, on mountains, in bedrooms, in churches.  There are many humble servants to whom she appears who may not be making the information known.  The same with those who may have had or be having personal experiences of Jesus appearing to them or speaking to them.


Can I see Mary or hear her speak to me?

You can, if you believe, and she chooses to bless you.  God's timing is always perfect, so I am going to say, I'm guessing, her's is, too.  Do you want to see her and hear from her because your heart is on fire with love for her and her son Jesus, God, and Holy Spirit, or do you want to see her so you can collect royalties for a story down the line?  She knows, as does God, your hearts desire.  What about your belief system...will you scoff in disbelief...if she never appears? 


Are there special prayers to her?

Like what we call the Lord's Prayer, and it is special, there are special prayers.  There are some that are used, but you can just pray to her from your heart like we also pray to God, Jesus and Holy Spirit.  Here are some prayers prayed over many centuries that have been used to honor her, request prayers, share concerns [similar to losing a loved one....people have a tendency to talk to the deceased loved one, requesting they pray for them on their behalf, tell them they love them, miss them, what they have done with their life to show honor to them]:

Hail Mary

Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with you.  Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.  Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of our death.  Amen.

The Angelus

The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary, and she conceived of the Holy Ghost.

Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with you.  Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.  Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of our death.

Behold the handmaid of the Lord:  be it done unto me according to your word.

Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with you.  Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.  Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of our death.  

And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.

Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with you.  Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.  Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of our death.

Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.

That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

The Memorare

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary!  that never was it known that any one who fled to your protection, implored your help, and sought your intercession, was left unaided.  Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother*.  To thee I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate! despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.  Amen.  [*Understanding:  Since God is our Heavenly Father, and Mary is the Mother of Jesus, our Lord, Mary is spiritually our Heavenly Mother.] [To further understand this, when you marry someone, you go to your mother-in-law at times....similar anology to Jesus with Mary.] 

Hail Holy Queen

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope.  To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.  Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us; and after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.  O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!  Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. 

The Salve Regina (traditional Latin) reads like this after 'O sweet Virgin Mary!'  Make me worthy to praise thee, holy Virgin.  Give me strength against thine enemies.  Blessed be God in His saints.  Amen.] 


Do I need to say these prayers?

No.  You do not need to say these prayers to Mary.  You can pray anything from your heart.  You also do not need to say any prayers as a condition of your salvation.  They are separate. 


Is Mary more important than Jesus, God or Holy Spirit?

No.  She helps to lead us to Jesus, who saves us, confirming we are one of God's children, and to be another source of strength with the Holy Spirit to help us go forth to share the gospel with others in the world.  Her goal is the same as theirs...that everyone on earth look to Jesus to be forgiven of their sins, obtain eternal life, and be saved from Satan and hell. 


For now...

I hope this answers some of your questions about Mary, Mother of Jesus, son of God.  There are many more things I hope to share and add to this site.  I'd like to add links to places where Mary has appeared or is appearing, and a place for you to tell us about your personal miracles associated with Mary.  I'll start the list, so you feel more comfortable sharing.  But I have to learn how to link this page first and then that page. 

I am excited about this opportunity to show you Mary's heart and her love, and how Mary has so embraced me with her love, just as God, Jesus and Holy Spirit have.  There are many mysteries surrounding our Lord, many cannot or will not be explained until we reach his arms in heaven.  For now, I am a satisfied saint, if you will.  I am truly honored to be blessed by the presence of the Trinity and Mary in my life.  I would be lost without them all, their friendship, and their gift of mercy through my salvation.  I pray that all of you will receive blessings overflowing. 

As Paul said in Ephesians 3:14-21 in his Prayer for Spiritual Empowerment, I, too, pray, as I believe Mary would as well:

"When I think of the wisdom and scope of God's plan, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth.  I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will give you mighty inner strength through his Holy Spirit.  And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust in him.  May your roots go down deep into the soil of God's marvelous love.  And may you have the power to understand, as all Gods' people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love really is.  May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never fully understand it.  Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

Now glory be to God!  By his mighty power at work within us, he is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope.  May he be given glory in the chruch and in Christ Jesus forever and ever through endless ages.  Amen."
