Virgin Mary’s Life by Athanasius of Alexandria

“The Holy Scriptures, which instructs us, and the life of Mary, Mother of God, suffice as an ideal of perfection and the form of the heavenly life.”

Athanasius, De virginitate, in Le Musèon 42:255

The Holy Scripture did not mention much about Virgin Mary. However, the narrative was sufficient to demonstrate her virtues. One of her unique virtues is her intercession during the wedding of Cana. Her intercession is showing love and care for others. May we all love and care for others the same as Virgin Mary. So we experience the heavenly Kingdom of God on earth.
