      Error, indeed, is never set forth in its naked deformity, lest,
      being thus exposed, it should at once be detected. But it is craftily decked out
      in an attractive dress, so as, by its outward form, to make it appear to the inexperienced
      (ridiculous as the expression may seem) more true than the truth itself. One far
      superior to me has well said, in reference to this point, "A clever imitation
      in glass casts contempt, as it were, on that precious jewel the emerald (which is
      most highly esteemed by some), unless it come under the eye of one able to test
      and expose the counterfeit. Or, again, what inexperienced person can with ease detect
      the presence of brass when it has been mixed up with silver?"

        Even though Eve had Adam for a husband, she was still a virgin... By disobeying, she became the cause of death for herself and for the whole human race. In the same way, Mary, through she also had a husband, was still a virgin, and by obeying, she became the cause of salvation for herself and for the whole human race... The knot of Eve's disobedience was untied by Mary's obedience. What Eve bound through her unbelief, Mary loosed by her faith.

          And thus one God the Father is declared, who is
          above all, and through all, and in all. The Father is indeed above all, and He
          is the Head of Christ; but the Word is through all things, and is Himself the
          Head of the Church; while the Spirit is in us all, and He is the living water,
          which the Lord grants to those who rightly believe in Him, and love Him, and
          who know that 'there is one Father, who is above all, and through all, and in
          us all' (Eph. 4:6)

            in Himself all things in heaven and on earth. He united man with God and brought
            about communion between God and man.

              The prophets who proclaimed Him as Emmanuel, born of a Virgin, were showing
              forth the union of the Word of God with His own handiwork. They were announcing
              that the Word would be made flesh, that the Son of God would be the Son of Man,
              that the pure One, in a pure way, would open that pure womb which regenerates
              men in God, that pure womb which He Himself made to be pure.

                Christ is Risen! + Indeed He is Risen!

                He sent the creative Word, who, coming to save us, was in the same place and
                situation in which we were when we lost life, breaking the bonds of the prison;
                and His light appeared and dispelled the darkness of the prison, and sanctified
                our birth and abolished death, loosening the same bonds by which we were
                trapped. And He demonstrated the resurrection, becoming Himself "the first-born
                from the dead," and raising in Himself fallen.
