“ Holy Mary, blessed Mary, Mother and Virgin, virgin before giving birth and virgin after giving birth! I marvel that a virgin is born of a virgin and that after the virgin’s birth, his Mother remained a virgin.!”

Jerome, Homilia in Joannem 1, 1-14; CCL 78, 521.

Reading this from the perspective of Jesus saving the world makes complete sense. Again, Virgin Mary’s is the Mother of God. Jesus Christ would have been an ordinary man if it has been otherwise.
