Mary, Mother of God: Precious Vessel

August 5

August 5

The Dedication of the Basilica of St. Mary Major

 “Mary, Mother of God, we salute you. Precious vessel, worthy of the whole world’s reverence, you are an ever-shining light, the crown of virginity, the symbol of orthodoxy, an indestructible temple, the place that held him whom no place can contain, mother and virgin. Because of you the holy gospels could say: Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

                                                                        -Saint Cyril of Alexandria

Today's Reflection:

This quote contains several descriptives of the Blessed Virgin Mary. What are they? How does each aptly apply to her?
