Mary of Nazareth

The Web site Mary of Nazareth is the fruit of the the "Mary of Nazareth" Project:

"The essential mission of the "Marie de Nazareth" Association is to offer the possibility of making a personal encounter with the Blessed Mother, who leads us to Jesus Christ.

The "Mary of Nazareth" Project will carry out this mission by creating the first International Marian Center of worldwide outreach in Nazareth, linked to at least 12 Associated Marian Centers, in 12 different language areas, which will work together and use the most advanced multi-media technologies, in order to present the wealth of all the Christian traditions to the general public."

The Web site is rich in content and beautifully conceived. The main menu indicates some of the resources offered:

Also available on the site and not to be missed is the Multimedia Gallery where you will find music videos, flash presentations (mostly in French, but visually stunning with music that all can appreciate), excerpts from the movie "Ave Maria". The latter is a recent production of the "Mary de Nazareth" Association and offers extraordinary cinematography and a wonderful sound track.

Mary Did You Know?

One additional feature worth mentioning is "A Moment with Mary", a daily text on Mary excerpted from various sources: Church Fathers, saints, Popes, literary works...
