Switzerland. Canton Ticino. View from Monte Boglia . A golden statue of the Virgin Mary with hands joined in prayer. Mary was a first-century Galilean Jewish woman of Nazareth, the wife of Joseph, and the mother of Jesus, according to the canonical gospels. The gospels of Matthew and Luke in the New Testament describe Mary as a virgin. According to Christian theology she conceived Jesus through the Holy Spirit while still a virgin. According to Catholic and Eastern Christian teachings, at the end of her earthly life God raised her body directly into heaven; this is known in the Christian West as the Assumption. Mary has been venerated since early Christianity, and is considered by millions to be the most meritorious saint of the religion. The Catholic Church holds distinctive Marian dogmas, namely her status as the Mother of God, her Immaculate Conception, her perpetual virginity, and her Assumption into heaven.
