A final reference to Mary is
found in John's Book of Revelation.
A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman
clothed with the sun, with the moon under
her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve
stars. She was with child and wailed aloud
in pain as she labored to give birth. ...
She gave birth to a son, a male child,
destined to rule all the nations with an
iron rod. Her child was caught up to God
and his throne.
