“This woman is the model of virginity. For such was Mary, that the life of this one woman may be an example for all.”

Ambrose of Milan, De virginibus 2, IS; PL 15, 222.

If we live like Virgin Mary we would have a dwelling of God in us. If we keep ourselves unstained from the world we will truly experience the true God.
