Daily Catholic Quote from Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

“He was born of a Mother whom He chose before He was born. It is the only instance in history where both the Son willed the Mother and the Mother willed the Son. And this is what the Creed means when it says ‘born of the Virgin Mary’. She was called by God as Aaron was, and Our Lord was born not just of her flesh but also by her consent. Before taking unto Himself a human nature, He consulted with the Woman, to ask her if she would give Him a man. The Manhood of Jesus was not stolen from humanity, as Prometheus stole fire from heaven; it was given as a gift.” (Archbishop Fulton Sheen; The World’s First Love — Love Begins with a Dream)
