Mary, Our Lady

One of the many titles by which we know our Blessed Mother, is a title of honor and respect. Indeed, Catholics throughout the world honor her and claim her to be “Our Lady.” The list of titles for Mary that begins with those words of respect and reverence are too numerous to count here. But the resources offered in this collection will engage children and youth in learning six stories behind Marian titles that begin with the words “Our Lady.”

Each story, each devotion, reveals Our Lady’s compassion, intercession, faithfulness, and goodness. Many of the stories include mention of images, statues, chapels, and churches created
and built to designate the places where Mary appeared, listened, and interceded on behalf of those who cried out to her in prayer.

Each resource begins with the story of the devotion being highlighted. It is best to tell each story in your own words, in a way best suited for the ages of the children and youth in your class or group.

Following the story are simple suggestions for helping the young people make faith connections, as well as simple suggestions for age-appropriate cross-curricular activities. These suggestions are offered for primary, intermediate, and junior high-aged children.

Through these six stories and activities, may we all come to know and love Our Lady more deeply, and may we too call upon her help and intercession in our daily lives.
