1. The Virgin Mary
The Virgin is the mother of Jesus and our mother. She is the most perfect creature ever created by the hands of God, and we must love her as she was our real mother, with our affection and works.
Mary is the Immaculate Conception, which means she was without original sin or other else for her life.
She was virgin all her life: before the birth, during the same birth and after it. This is the reason to call her “Virgin”
Mary ascended to Heaven in body and soul. This is celebrated in the festivity of the Assumption. She is also the Co-Reedemer, because she was, by Christ, tied with the redention of humankind. She was Queen and Lady of Creation, Mother of the Chuch and mediatrix of the Grace. It is by her that we receive all the good things.
Mary is our mother because Jesus gave us when he was in the cross. He said to John: “Behold, your mother” (Jn 19,27). Since then she intercede for us. We must behave as good sons of the Virgin.

2. Secret life of Jesus
Jesus lived in Nazareth. In the Gospel is written that “Jesus increased in wisdom and in years, and in divine and human favour.”(Lc 2,52). We call these years the “hidden life” of Jesus, since his born to the beginning of his preaching, when He was thirty years old.
In that time Jesus had a simple life: He played with his friends, obbeyed his fathers, learned the psalms and studied the story of Abraham, Moses and the prophets.
When He was twelve years old, He went with his parents to the temple of Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover. Jesus stayed at the Temple, discussing about the laws of God with the doctors. His parents finally found him after three days, and He said to them: "Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?" (Lc 2, 49)
In Nazareth his father taught the profession of crafstman, possibly carpenter. Saint Joseph was the father of Jesus here in earth. With his job he took care of the Holy family. Jesus worked hard and offered it with love to God Father. As Jesus did, we must study and work hard, offering with love our job to God Father.
