EVE WAS THE CAUSE OF DEATH; MARY WAS THE CAUSE OF LIFE

A nice writing on Mamma Mary

“Eve was the cause of death for mankind; for, through her, death entered the world. Mary, on the other hand, was the cause of life. Through her, life was born for us, through her, the Son of God came into the world. Where sin had known no bounds, grace abounded still more. Life came forth from the source of death that it might supplant death.

For he who through woman became life for us banished the death which woman had brought in. Where Eve, still a virgin, had sinned by disobedience, through this Virgin, on the contrary, we became obedient to God’s grace at the announcement of God’s coming in flesh from heaven; through her we received life eternal.”
– St Epiphanius, bishop
