maria

By Fr. Félix López, S.H.M.

Peter was born in Imola, Italy, around the year 380. He later received his formation from the bishop of the city, Cornelius, whom he had always greatly esteemed. In the year 424 he was elected Bishop of Ravena, a city that was also home to the emperor of the West. Since traces of paganism still remained in his diocese, he strove to [fully] establish the Catholic faith, and worked with such enthusiasm in converting the faithless that when he died, very few non-believers remained in the city.

“Tu hai dato alla luce il Principio che non ha principio, un bambino anteriore a tutte le età, Figlio della Vergine, l’Eterno che si nutre nel Tuo seno; Colui che è più antico di Sua Madre…”

“Oh man, go in thought through all of creation and see if there exists something comparable to or greater than the Holy Virgin, Mother of God”

"A virgin conceives, yet remains a virgin: a virgin is heavy with child; a virgin brings forth her child, yet she is always a virgin. Why are you amazed at this, O man? It was fitting for God to be born thus when He deigned to become man” (Serm. 186, 1).

Even though this section is dedicated to the study of Mary in the writings of the Church Fathers, we cannot forget to mention this apocryphal writing which faithfully brings together the common piety of the first Christian generations.
