St. Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ, also known as the Virgin Mary, conceived and bore a Son contrary to all biological laws. By saying "Yes" to the will of God, She turned history upside down. She was docile and obedient but future events proved Her gallant and determined too. She taught that "Love is an active verb and that love is a synonym for growth". Wordsworth described her as "our tainted nature's solitary boast". The editors of TIME call her "The most celebrated woman who ever lived". She is the only Mother, God ever had. She still transcends all definitions and is whatever people want and need her to be. Someone has declared her a significant model for women. That would be a tragedy. She is rather a significant model for all of us.
