Culture of Life Studies
Honoring the Blessed Mother (Digital Download)
In this lesson, students learn the story of the Annunciation and Mary’s “yes” to God to become the mother of our Savior. As Christians, we understand that Mary played one of the most important roles in the history of our salvation as the mother of our Savior, which is why we choose to honor her in a very special way with feast days throughout the year and especially during the month of May. As a pro-life people, we also turn to Our Lady for her help as we work to build a culture of life. Mary’s “yes”—her “fiat” to God—reinforces the pro-life message in many ways. Through Mary’s example, we learn how to love, affirm, and respect every human being as a gift during every stage of life.
