Mary TheotokosIn honor of the third Sunday in Advent–a day set aside to honor Mary in the midst of the Advent season–MM, over at Theology of the Body has posted the following words from what I initially thought was an unlikely source:

(Let us) rightly and profitably repeat the angelic greeting ‘Hail Mary’ . . . God esteemed Mary above all creatures, including the saints and angels. It is her purity, innocence and invincible faith that mankind must follow.” -Huldreich Zwingli
