The Virgin Mary and Theology of the Body
Please select all options.
As the Mother of God, Mary provided Jesus with his body, a body that would be offered on the Cross for our redemption. She bore witness to his bodily resurrection and ascension, and she herself was assumed bodily into heaven. Through an understanding of Mary's role in salvation history, we are able to see more clearly our personal roles in the Christian life.
