The “virgin” is revered more than Jesus by most Catholics all around the world. They will typically have a large statute of her in their house and no anything of Jesus. Many times they put a food offering at her feet. The most said prayer by the Catholics is the “Hail Mary”, (No, it’s not a football pass!).
Attend Church Services for Virgin Mary (New Year's day!)
All Catholics are required to attend church services (a holy day of obligation) on the first day of the year, January 1, the day set aside to honor the Holy Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God. As a priest stated “We are reminded of the role that the Blessed Virgin played in the plan of our salvation. We trust in her prayers to God for us, that we might, as the years pass, become more like her. She never hesitated to do Gods will.” Earlier Christians called her Theotokos, “the God Bearer.” In the first day of the year, Catholics are to draw inspiration from her for the balance of the new year.
And Again for Virgin Mary ... (Annunciation day)
And don’t forget ... to go to church services on Annunciation day, March 25 (a holy day of obligation), the day when Angel Gabriel appeared to Mary and told “Mary the mother of God” that she would be the mother of Jesus.
And Again for Virgin Mary ... (Assumption day)
And also don’t forget ... to attend church services on August 15, the Assumption of Mary (a holy day of obligation) , to honor and pray to the virgin Mary. Evidently assumption means the body of the virgin Mary ascended up into heaven before the body could be buried. It disappeared into the heavens.
And Again for Virgin Mary ... (Immaculate Conception day)
And don’t forget ... to go to church services on Immaculate Conception day, December 8 (a holy day of obligation), the day when Mary mother of God was miraculously impregnated. Evidently Mary had a longer pregnancy than normal women since the birthday of Jesus is only 17 days later, which means her pregnancy took over a year.
As far back as 100 CE it was said that Jesus was not born of a virgin. Ebionites agree (source=St Irenaeus, Heresies 1:26:1 2).
