Where is the tomb of the Virgin Mary? Why has it never been found?

We know where all the apostles are buried: Peter & Paul's remains are in Rome, Mark is in Venice, Italy.

What about the Virgin Mary?

    Mary's body was taken up into heaven (the Assumption), that's why there is no burial site for the Virgin Mary (because there is/was no body to bury).

    Christians would have documented where she was buried like they did with the other early Christian leaders. .

    The passing of the Virgin Mary/Assumption was documented in early Christian writing:

    "Then the apostles with great honour laid Mary's body in the tomb, weeping and singing through exceeding love and sweetness. And suddenly there shone round them a light from heaven, and they fell to the ground, and the holy body was taken up by angels into heaven.

    ....Then the blessed Thomas told them how he was singing mass in India - he still had on his sacerdotal robes. He, not knowing the word of God, had been brought to the Mount of Olivet, and saw the most holy body of the blessed Mary going up into heaven."

    There isn't one, and she was no virgin when she died.

    Legend has it that Mary died in the town of Nazareth and that she left instructions that her body be cremated or burned so that it could never be used as an object of worship.

    No one knows.

    The Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, when her earthly life was over.” This teaching has led some Catholic theologians to claim that Mary “did not die and was immediately raised from earthly life to heavenly glory,” says the paper.

    Pope John Paul II cast a different light on the matter. At the General Audience at the Vatican on June 25, 1997, he said: “The New Testament provides no information on the circumstances of Mary’s death.

    This silence leads one to suppose that it happened naturally, with no detail particularly worthy of mention. The opinions that wish to exclude her from death by natural causes seem groundless.

    The Bible simply says: “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23 Yes, Mary inherited sin and imperfection as did the rest of humankind, and there is no evidence that she died from anything other than natural causes.

    Jesus' mom is unimportant beyond establishing that He has an earthly mother in total fulfillment of Messianic prophecies.

    Since it's all a myth, it doesn't matter.
