What do you think obedience is? by St. Cyril of Alexandria

“Further, Christ shows that the greatest possible honor is owed to parents by the fact that, out of respect for his Mother, he decided to work a miracle that he had not wanted to perform.”

Cyril of Alexandria, Commentary on John 2, 1; PG 73, 225.

A great view from a church father on Jesus’s interaction with the Virgin Mary at the Wedding of Galilee. How would someone respect their parents?

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 Kindle and paperback formats.
