The Birth of Christ Proved No Detriment to the Virginity of Mary: Thursday, October 8, 2015

J.M.J. "By a new nativity He was begotten, conceived by a Virgin, born of a Virgin, without paternal desire, without injury to the Mother's chastity; because such a birth as knew no taint of human flesh, became One Who was to be the Savior of men, while it possessed in itself the nature of human substance."

--Pope Saint Leo the Great (440-461), Sermon 22, II (in PL 54, 193B-199A), as quoted by the Reverend Luca M. Genovese, "The Significance of the Virgin Birth in Saint Leo the Great" in Missio Immaculatae International (September/October 2015), 4-5.
