Here are several articles on  the Virgin Mary:

If I may make a suggestion, you might also be interested in reading through the Book of Concord which has the basic doctrines of the Lutheran Church.  In particular, read through the Augsburg Confession, which was written to show we were still catholic in our teachings, and the Apology (or Defense) of the Augsburg Confession, which expanded on the original confession--it has a good section on the saints.  You can read it on line @


bookofconcord.org/augsburgconfession.php

Thanks so much.  The first few links you gave me of the Lutheran answered the question.  Thanks also for the other link on Lutheran doctrine.  ONline is good!  I'll bookmark both.

Why did Luther say in his sermon about infant baptism that “in baptism the children themselves believe and have their own faith,”

Because we understand "Faith" to be a GIFT --- NOT an Accomplishment ...

Thanks , I always wondered how the ceremony of baptism saves someone but now I can  understand that the words


 “For it is by his grace that we have been saved through faith, and this faith was not from you, but it is the gift of God”


hold true especially in  infant baptism………..another instance of Gods  immense love for us
