I am the Mary to Jesus Blogger. I had a major life changing event in 2020 which I credit my surviving to the intercession of the Holy Spirit, His spouse the Blessed Virgin Mary and Jesus’s mercy. I am currently employed and due to concerns I have regarding religious intolerance, and criticism from skeptics and Christians alike, I have chosen to remain an anonymous blog author, so I am free to deliver the understandings from Jesus and Mary, without the noise of analyzing me. You are free to read what I write on its’ own merits and see if you find the thoughts helpful. My goal is to help others in a small way in their own faith journey. Fiat!
