St. Cyril of Alexandria: . . . if our Lord Jesus Christ is God . . .

Icon of St. Cyril of Alexandria“I have been amazed that some are utterly in doubt as to whether or not the Holy Virgin is able to be called the Mother of God. For if our Lord Jesus Christ is God, how should the Holy Virgin who bore him not be the Mother of God?”

— St. Cyril of Alexandria, Letter to the Monks of Egypt
