As you probably know if you’ve followed this blog for a while or if you’ve met me in real life, my Catholic faith informs a lot of my understanding of birth and death. So, as a Christmas special, I want to share with you a piece I wrote earlier this year about Mary’s birth story and Jesus’ delivery.
If you’ve ever wondered whether Jesus was born vaginally or by c-secction, this is the piece for you: “Some of you might be wondering why I would spend all this time writing a blog post about Mary’s hymen, but I’d like to remind you that the Church Fathers wrote far more about this than I have. Birth is a transformative event that speaks volumes to how we understand ourselves, God, and the world around us. The theological implications of the details of Mary’s birth story shed light on who we are and who God is.”
