St. Mary: An Icon of Simplicity
Written by H.G. Bishop Youssef   
Friday, 14 August 2015


ImageTo write about the virtue of Simplicity is to write about St. Mary. Although many virtues found residence with the Mother of God, yet when it comes to Simplicity, St. Mary immediately stands conspicuous and a sole source of inspiration and reference.In the book the Songs of Songs we read There are sixty queens and eighty concubines, and virgins without number. My dove, my perfect one, is the only one, the only one of her mother, the favorite of the one who bore her. The daughters saw her and called her blessed, the queens and the concubines, and they praised her. Who is she who looks forth as the morning, Fair as the moon, clear as the sun, Awesome as an army with banners? (Songs 6:8-10). This verse illustrates the uniqueness of St. Mary; and is applicable to her and her alone;unlike all the other verses that could be alluding to the human soulin particular or the church of Christ in general.
