But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

Romans 8:11

St. Mary The 'Theotokos'

This is a Greek word composed of two syllables: 'Theo' meaning 'God' and 'tokos' meaning 'bearer'; that is 'she who bore God in her womb.'

This theological term has its origin in the Holy Bible, as follows:

1- Archangel Gabriel announced to Saint Mary saying "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God" (Luke 1:35).

2- Elizabeth said to Saint Mary, "But why is this granted to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?" (Luke 1:43).

3- Isaiah prophesied concerning Saint Mary and said, "Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel" (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23).

May her prayers and intercessions be with us all. Amen.
