Women are no longer in sorrow by St. Cyril of Alexandria

“Many notable things were accomplished in this one sign, his first sign. Honorable marriage is sanctified, and the curse pronounced against woman is overcome. Women will no longer bear children in sorrow, since Christ has blessed the very beginning of our lives.”

Cyril of Alexandria, Commentary on John 2, 1;PG 73, 228.
