January 1: HAPPY SOLEMNITY OF MARY, MOTHER OF GOD!
Why Do Catholics Rightfully Call Mary, the Mother of God?
AV summary & text
495 Called in the Gospels “the mother of Jesus”, Mary is acclaimed by Elizabeth, at the prompting of the Spirit and even before the birth of her son, as “the mother of my Lord”. In fact, the One whom she conceived as man by the Holy Spirit, who truly became her Son according to the flesh, was none other than the Father’s eternal Son, the second person of the Holy Trinity. Hence the Church confesses that Mary is truly “Mother of God” (Theotokos). 509 Mary is truly “Mother of God” since she is the mother of the eternal Son of God made man, who is God himself.
