“Such an incredible and unheard-of birth needed to be announced to her before it could be believed. A virgin giving birth is the sign of a divine mystery, not a human one. And so he says, “Let this be a sign for you: Behold, the virgin shall conceive in her womb and bear a son” (Is 7:14). Mary had read this passage; therefore, she believed that the prophecy would come true, but she could not have read about how it would happen.”

Ambrose of Milan, Expositio in Lucam 2, 15; PL 15, 1639.

Virgin Mary believed the prophecy, but did not know how it would occur. Because of her belief and obedience we are saved. Do you believe Jesus is God, and therefore obey his commandments?
