The Mother of God

Feast of St. Cyril of Alexandria , Bishop (D. 444)

That anyone could doubt the right of the holy Virgin to be called the Mother of God fills me with astonishment. Surely she must be the Mother of God if our Lord Jesus Christ is God, and she gave birth to him! Our Lord’s disciples may not have used those exact words, but they delivered to us the belief those words enshrine, and this has also been taught us by the holy fathers.

Today’s Reflection:

Consider the logic of St. Cyril of Alexandria regarding Mary’s title of Mother of God. How does this increase my ability to communicate this truth to those who may object to this title?
