According to Greek Philosophy, courage is a virtue. A virtue is an active condition, i.e. a person needs to be actively doing something. Also, courage involves others and overcoming fear. Here, we see St. Mary’s being with Jesus across his journey to the cross. As a mother, she faced her fear and pain for the world’s salvation. How do you deal with your fears and pains? Do you face them like Virgin Mary?
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.
