30 Days with Mary – Day 15

What the doctors of the Church teach about the Mother of God.

“Mary, because she is the Mother of God, possesses an infinite dignity, due to her relationship with God, who is the infinite good” (St Thomas Aquinas).

“To be the Mother of God is such a grace that God cannot grant one greater. God could create a bigger world and a larger sky, but to make a mother, greater than the Mother of God is an impossible thing, even for God” (Conrad of Saxony).

The Catholic Church, with all its honors (temples, festivals, songs, flowers, respect, trust, love), did not elevate the Virgin as high as the Gospels did, with words so beautiful and simple, yet so rich and eloquent: Mary, of her was born Jesus who is called the Messiah [Mt 1:16] (cf. Friar Monsabré).

“If the Person of Jesus Christ is unique, and it is divine, without a doubt Mary must be called not only Mother of Christ man, but Mother of God, Theotókos” (Pope Pius XI).

“The Virgin Mary is indeed the Mother of God because her Son, Christ, is God” (Council of Ephesus, year 431).
