As a result of Virgin Mary by St. Cyril of Alexandria

“I salute you, O Mary, Theotókos: through you the prophets speak out, and the shepherds sing God’s praises . . ., the angels dance, and the archangels sing tremendous hymns…, the Magi prostrate themselves in adoration…., the dignity of the twelve apostles has been exalted . . . , John exulted while still in his mother’s womb, and the lamp adored the everlasting light . . . , grace ineffable came forth the true light came into the world, our Lord Jesus Christ…., light shone on those sitting in darkness and in the shadow of death.”

Cyril of Alexandria, Homily 11; PG 77, 1030.

Our actions have far more consequences than ourselves. Whether good or bad, actions affect ourselves, the people around us and the creation. Adam and Eve disobeyed God; they were ashamed, the earth was cursed, and one of their offspring killed his brother. Virgin Mary obeyed God, the creation rejoiced, and the world was saved by her Son’s death.
