Fr Serafino speaks about the relationship between the Triune God and Our Lady, laid out by the mystery of Mary’s Virginity, reflection in our creation of God’s Purity. Purity in God is the expression of his being: God cannot but be and be necessarily a communion of love. In Our Lady there is a finite but perfect manifestation of God’s infinite perfection. This created perfection, which makes Mary resemble the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, is Mary’s purity, lived out by Her as perpetual virginity. When the Virgin Mary at the Annunciation assented to God with Her Fiat, She publicly made manifest her intimate relationship with the Triune God. By the power of the Holy Spirit, She became the Mother of the Son, virginally generated as He is purely generated by the Father since eternity. The analogy here is breathtaking!
