Remember that rather recent thread about - How was Jesus Born - ? In the beginnings of that post I shared that a woman strong and devout told me that the Baby Jesus - did not come through the birth canal - her surmising then that this kept with the teaching that she was a Virgin Mother. I know this is like mixing apples and oranges - meaning 2 different topics. But help me if you will in words - as to what the church believes through the Doctors of the Church and Scripture.
Am I concluding correctly that faith has it that Our Dear Blessed Mother - gave birth in a way not of the way of "usual mothers". Say for instance - St. John the Baptist's mom had a normal vaginal delivery with accompanying pains. But because Mary is the Mother of God and sinless - she delivered Jesus in a mystical way that did not interrupt her "birth canal" for lack of better words??
And hence no pain - because it was a miraculous birth - a purely Mystical Event?
If Mary Our Mother did have a normal vaginal delivery of Jesus, does that in anyway as this woman believed - made her unfit for the title of Virgin - hence Jesus HAD to have a mystical birth - unlike any other?
Great Research - cool - and appreciated. In the end I hear my grade school nun saying "Agatha it is a mystery" LOL!
