Our Lady's Life

I'm not sure if you saw these articles, but I would recommend a read.  Thomas McDonald offers a two-part series on the life of Our Lady after Pentecost, drawing mainly on ancient works by St Melito of Sardis and St Maximus the Confessor

It is interesting that McDonald does not accept the Ephesus tradition but is inclined towards the Jerusalem tradition.  

If you are looking for some good Lenten reading the work by St Maximus would be good.  It very much shows Our Lady as being active in the early Church, continuing, in a sense, the role she embraced at the Visitation - going out to those in need bringing Christ with her.  The book is available. I got a copy in CTS in London some time ago, but it can be ordered from Amazon.
