Musings for a Sunday

Still life set together by Dom

As yesterday was the birthday of Mary, the Mother of God, 
here are some quotes about the Blessed Virgin.

"Do not marvel at the novelty of the thing, if a Virgin gives birth to God"
-Saint Jerome, Father and Doctor of the Church

“Even while living in the world, the heart of Mary was so filled with motherly tenderness and compassion for men that no-one ever suffered so much for their own pains, as Mary suffered for the pains of her children.”
-Saint Jerome, Father and Doctor of the Church

"The world being unworthy to receive the Son of God directly from the hands of the Father, he gave his Son to Mary for the world to receive him from her."
-Saint Augustine – Bishop of Hippo, Father, and Doctor of the Church

“As mariners are guided into port by the shining of a star, so Christians are guided to heaven by Mary"
-Saint Thomas Aquinas, Doctor of the Church
