Faith in Christ’s birth by Hilary of Poitiers

Gabriel pronounces; Christ is received into the Virgin’s body.
The womb swells because of the holy Offspring.
We are exhorted to believe in something new,
and never seen before:
A childbearing Virgin.

Hilary of Poitiers , Hymn on Christ II-13, CSEL 65, 218

Jesus was born to help our weaknesses. His miraculous birth says alot about His divinity and His willingness to help us. He is born to make everything new in our lives.

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.
