    the assumption of the body of our pure Lady St. Mary, the Mother of God. While she was keeping vigil, praying in the Holy Sepulchre, and waiting for the happy minute of her liberation from the bonds of the flesh, the Holy Spirit informed her of her forthcoming departure from this vain world. When the time drew near, the disciples and the vιʀԍιɴs of the Mt. of Olives (Zeiton) came and the Lady was lying on her bed. Our Lord, surrounded by thousands and thousands of angels, came to Her. He consoled her, and announced her with the everlasting joy which was prepared for Her. She was happy, and she stretched out her hands, blessed the Disciples, and the Virgins. Then, she delivered up her pure soul in the hand of her Son and God, Jesus Christ, Who ascended her to the higher habitations. As of the pure body, they shrouded it and carried it to Gethsemane.

    On their way, some of the Jews blocked the way in the face of the disciples to prevent the burial. One of them seized the coffin. His hands were separated from his body, and remained hanging until he believed and repented for his mischievous deed. With the prayers of the holy disciples, his hands were reattached to his body as they had been before.

    St. Thomas was absent at the time of St. Mary's departure, but he came after the burial. On his way back to Jerusalem, St. Thomas saw angels carrying St. Mary's pure body and ascending with it to heaven, and one of the angels said to him, "Hurry and kiss the pure body of St. Mary." When he arrived to the disciples, they informed him about St. Mary's departure. He told them, "I will not believe, unless I see her body, as you all know how I did doubt the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ before." They took him to the tomb, to uncover the body but they did not find it, and they were perplexed and amazed. St. Thomas told them how he saw the pure body ascending to heaven, carried by angels.

    The Holy Spirit then told them, "The Lord did not Will to leave Her Holy body on earth." The Lord had promised his pure apostles that they would see her in flesh another time. They were waiting for the fulfillment of this truthful promise, until the sixteenth day of the month of Misra, when the promise of seeing her was fulfilled. They saw her sitting on the right hand of her Son and her Lord, surrounded by the angelic Host, as David prophesied and said, "At your right hand stands the queen." (Psalm 45:9) St. Mary's life on earth was sixty years. She spent twelve years of them in the temple, thirty years in the house of the righteous St. Joseph, and fourteen years in the care of St. John the Evangelist, as the Lord commanded her saying, "Woman behold your Son," and to St. John, "Behold your Mother."

  • 64

  • The Bible doesn't really say anything on this, beyond the fact that she was at her Son's crucifixion (Remember- Jesus gave her into John's care before He died). Everything else is speculation.

    There are some who speculate that she and Joseph had a celibate marriage.

    There is one passage in the NT where it implies that Jesus had other siblings- sisters as well as brothers.

    Some think that Joseph was a widower when he took Mary as wife, and those other children were his from his first marriage.

    Personally I don't know that it much matters.

  • She lived to be 77 years old and having 5 grandchildren...Who

    All became Drs.lawyers and accountants..

  • Doesn't give her age at death. This is her children:

    Matthew 1:24-25 - "And Joseph arose from his sleep, and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took as his wife, and kept her a vιʀԍιɴ until she gave birth to a Son; and he called His name Jesus."

    Matthew 12:46-47 - "While He was still speaking to the multitudes, behold, His mother and brothers were standing outside, seeking to speak to Him. And someone said to Him, "Behold, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside seeking to speak to You."

    Matthew 13:55 - "Is not this the carpenters son? Is not His mother called Mary, and His brothers, James and Joseph and Simon and Judas?"

    Mark 6:2-3 - "And when the Sabbath had come, He began to teach in the synagogue; and the many listeners were astonished, saying, "Where did this man get these things, and what is this wisdom given to Him, and such miracles as these performed by His hands? "Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, and brother of James, and Joses, and Judas, and Simon? Are not His sisters here with us?"

    John 2:12 - "After this He went down to Capernaum, He and His mother, and His brothers, and His disciples; and there they stayed a few days."

    Acts 1:14 - "These all with one mind were continually devoting themselves to prayer, along with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers."

    1 Cor. 9:4-5 - "Do we not have a right to eat and drink? Do we not have a right to take along a believing wife, even as the rest of the apostles, and the brothers of the Lord, and Cephas?"

    Gal. 1:19 - "But I did not see any other of the apostles except James, the Lords brother."

  • It is unknown exactly how old Mary was when she died. One can only estimate. It is believed that she was around 14 when the Archangel Gabriel came to her and told her that she would conceive "God's only Son". It is believed that Jesus Christ lived approximately 33 years, making Mary around 47 when He died. Just before his death on The Cross, Jesus, "willed" Mary to the care of St. John the Beloved. After His death, Mary and St. John lived the remainder of her life together in Ephesus (now modern day Turkey). Christian tradition states that she died between (surrounded by The Apostles) three and fifteen years after Christ Ascended into Heaven, making her somewhere between the ages of 50 and 62 when she died.

  • Matthew 13:55-56

    55"Isn't this the carpenter's son? Isn't his mother's name Mary, and aren't his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? 56Aren't all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all these things?"

    The Bible does not say anything about Mary dying.

  • This is actually a very questionable answer. Some theologians say that she never really died and that she was risen up to heaven before. Others say she did die. Western "tradition" says she died at the age of 72, but no one is really positive.

    In my opinion, I believe that she died, but not exactly sure at what age.

    It is believed in the Catholic faith that Jesus was the only child of Mary's, and when they speak of Jesus's brothers and sisters, they mean his disciples.

    Hope I was of any help!


  • mary conceived jesus at 15 and died about 69 a.d and it is not for sure if she ever died. it is said that she was assumed into heaven by her divine son both body and soul.. i am a catholic and that is what i believe.

  • I don't believe anyone knows how old she was when she died.

    He had four brothers and an unknown amount of sisters.

    Why wouldn't Mary die? She was human.
