Took body from a virgin by Ambrose of Milan

“If we admit his generation from the Father, then let us also admit his birth from Mary, so that our faith might be complete.”

Ambrose of Milan, De benedictionibus patriarcharum sI; PI I4, 723.

Our faith is not just a hidden conviction; our faith appears in words and deeds. Accepting Jesus as human means we acknowledge everything he went through. When we accept Him, we have his image in us. Thus, we live the same life he lived.

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.
