Church of the Holy Sepulchre,Jerusalem
Sign of the Cross(blessing)
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You have already come, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
Lorenzo Monaco – The Intercession of Christ and the Virgin (c. 1402).
I will put enmity between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and hers;
They will strike at your head,
while you strike at their heel.*
Why Mary was a virgin before,during and after the birth of the Christ:
1. It’s Scriptural
2. Jesus had biological brothers???(think about this)
3. There was more than 1 Mary in scripture;be sure you have the right Mary when speaking about children
4. She and Joseph consecrated themselves totally to God
5. Why would it be impossible?
