Will Mary experience the Resurrection of the Dead?

With the dogmas on the Assumption and the Immaculate Conception, does she still need to experience the Resurrection of the Dead?

I know that the Saints will also be resurrected but will Mary too?

Nope. She was assumed, body and soul, alive, into heaven. She will witness it, most certainly.

great reply

Its an infallible Dogma. :highprayer:


  1. That privilege has shone forth in new radiance since our predecessor of immortal memory, Pius IX, solemnly proclaimed the dogma of the loving Mother of God’s Immaculate Conception. These two privileges are most closely bound to one another. Christ overcame sin and death by his own death, and one who through Baptism has been born again in a supernatural way has conquered sin and death through the same Christ. Yet, according to the general rule, God does not will to grant to the just the full effect of the victory over death until the end of time has come. And so it is that the bodies of even the just are corrupted after death, and only on the last day will they be joined, each to its own glorious soul.
  1. Now God has willed that the Blessed Virgin Mary should be exempted from this general rule. She, by an entirely unique privilege, completely overcame sin by her Immaculate Conception, and as a result she was not subject to the law of remaining in the corruption of the grave, and she did not have to wait until the end of time for the redemption of her body.

Christ’s Resurrection from the grave is the pledge of the Resurrection of the body to each one of us.

Our Blessed Mother’s Assumption - body and soul into Heaven, is the fulfillment of His promise - as it would apply to one completely free from any stain of sin . Our Blessed Mother remains our model par excellence : She precedes us in holiness and she precedes us into Heaven.

Because of those solemn dogmas, we know for a fact that the BVM HAS ALREADY experienced the Resurrection of the Dead. Therefore to answer your question:

No: since she has ALREADY experienced the Resurrection of the Dead.

I agree & think that is what allows her to appear in places like Lourdes and Fatima.

A mother carries the living cells of her child in her body. Makes one wonder if that has anything to do with it too.

Good point.
