Why is Virgin Mary a model to Christians? by Origen

“Every incorrupt and virgin soul, having conceived by the Holy Spirit in order to give birth to the will of the Father, is a mother of Jesus.” 

Origen, Fragments on Matthew 281; GCS 41/1, 126

If you are interested in more quotes on Virgin Mary, you can find them in Mary and the Fathers of the Church on Amazon in both in Kindle and paperback formats.

  1. Mary was a model to Christian’s in that she was humble and showed humility although she was highly honored to be the mother of Jesus, As such, she is to be honored but not worshipped as some do. Only Gid is to be worshipped.


  2. Reblogged this on The Authentic Jesus ( The Transforming Jesus) and commented:
    “One cannot always tell what it is that keeps us shut in, confines us,
    seems to bury us, but still one feels certain barriers, certain gates,
    certain walls. is all this imagination, fantasy?”
