Audience Reviews for Mary of Nazareth

I would recommend this movie to people of all walks of life. This is the story of the life of the Virgin of Nazareth whom God picked to be the Mother of His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Being a young girl, the choice to do God's will in her life must not be easy. She was engaged to a good and just man, Joseph and had a good future laid out for her. Yet, when the angel Gabriel approached her calling her, "Full of Grace-God's favorite one" inviting her to cooperate with God's plan of salvation for all mankind, and abandon her own, she was troubled for she has planned to remain a virgin forever for God. She was not sure how to respond to such a greeting and proposal. It was her humility, simplicity, faith and love for God that helped her to say "Yes-her great fiat" to the supernatural invitation from heaven. At that moment, man's salvation was in her very hands-to bring the Redeemer into the world. God was counting on her to help Him with His plan to safe the world. Everything stood still that very moment. Angels in heaven watched to see how the Virgin would respond to God's invitation. The Blessed Virgin is just as human as all of us, however, she was created by God without the original sin, for God prepared her to be the Mother of His Son-to be the channel of His grace (Jesus Christ) into the world, to be the bridge that connects heaven and earth, the tabernacle of the New Covenant. To read about the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary, you must read and ask the Holy Spirit to help you understand the 3rd book of Genesis-the story of the fall of Man, especially the words of God to the serpent who caused Adam and Eve to fall. (Genesis 3:15) Inspired by the faith, humility, and love of the Virgin Mary of Nazareth, for God and for all mankind, may we follow her example of faith in divine providence and always say, "Yes" to God when He invites us to help Him carry out a certain mission in the Church on earth for the sake of mankind-to be a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ. God bless you all.
