Yes...there's a passage somewhere in the Scriptures...let me pull it out:LizaSymonenko said:The Theotokos had actual sisters? How so?minasoliman said:There's another possible tradition. The sister of the Theotokos, also named Mary, is thought to have had children, who many in the Coptic Church have taken to think these are the "brothers and sisters" of Christ.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but do the Catholic Church believe that St. Joseph was a perpetual virgin?
Weren't her parents Anna and Joachim childless, and always praying that God grant them a child...which He did in their very old age. So, are you saying they continued to have an additional child/children after Mary was born?
"Now there stood by the cross of Jesus His mother, and His mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene." (John 19:25)
3 Mary's at the Cross by Christ's side, two of which were related to Christ.
Perhaps not a direct sister...maybe a cousin of the Theotokos?
