Nestorius, Patriarch of Antioch (fl. 410), believed that Jesus Christ had two natures -- man and God -- which remained separate throughout his period on earth.
Why the Theotokos?
Nestorianism. A heresy claiming that Jesus Christ had 2 natures-man and God-which remained separate throughout his life on earth.Nestorius and his teachings were eventually condemned as heretical at the First Council of Ephesus in 431 and the Council of Chalcedon in 451.
Nestorianism is a form of dyophysitism, and can be seen as the antithesis to monophysitism, which emerged in reaction to Nestorianism. Where Nestorianism holds that Christ had two loosely-united natures, divine and human, monophysitism holds that he had but a single nature, his human nature being absorbed into his divinity.
The Title Theotokos defines the true nature of Christ.

Thei site is dedicated to the Mother of God,Mary Most Holy. First as a way of thanksgiving for a wonderful favor already which family members were reunited beyond our expectations. Also,for the hope of an answered prayer for further family healing.


This is my favorite prayer to the Blessed Virgin Mary

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help or sought your intercession,
was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence,
I fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother;
to you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.

O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in your mercy hear and answer me.



My other favorite and powerful prayer is the rosary.Here is what John Paul the Great(now Venerable,soon to be Blessed)wrote re the rosary,

The Rosary, though clearly Marian in character, is at heart a Christocentric prayer. In the sobriety of its elements, it has all the depth of the Gospel message in its entirety, of which it can be said to be a compendium.(2) It is an echo of the prayerof Mary, her perennial Magnificat for the work of the redemptive Incarnation which began in her virginal womb. With the Rosary, the Christian people sits at the school of Mary and is led to contemplate the beauty on the face of Christ and to experience the depths of his love. Through the Rosary the faithful receive abundant grace, as though from the very hands of the Mother of the Redeemer.

The rosary,indeed,is a meditation on the Gospels and interiorizes the Life of Christ.

John Paul ii also added the Luminous Mysteries or Mysteries of Light during the Year of the Rosary.

The Words of the Hail Mary come straight from sacred scripture. People say there is nothing in the Bible about Mary and i say there is plenty.You must see it first.

This is a favorite poem of mine about the Blessed Virgin Mary.I learned it when i was a little girl.

Lovely Lady Dressed in Blue

Lovely Lady dressed in blue -------
Teach me how to pray!
God was just your little boy,
Tell me what to say!

Did you lift Him up, sometimes,
Gently on your knee?
Did you sing to Him the way
Mother does to me?

Did you hold His hand at night?
Did you ever try
Telling stories of the world?
O! And did He cry?

Do you really think He cares
If I tell Him things -------
Little things that happen? And
Do the Angels' wings

Make a noise? And can He hear
Me if I speak low?
Does He understand me now?
Tell me -------for you know.

Lovely Lady dressed in blue -------
Teach me how to pray!
God was just your little boy,
And you know the way.

Mary Dixon Thayer who wrote more than one poem for Our Lady, is the author.
This prayer-poem was popularized in the 1950s by Archbishop Fulton Sheen.
