    ROME — The Blessed Virgin Mary was “normal, educated normally, open to marrying, to starting a family,” states Pope Francis in a new book-length interview that is sending shock-waves through the Catholic Church.

    “From the moment she was born until the Annunciation, to the moment she encountered the angel of God, I imagine her as a normal girl, a girl of today,” the pope declared in his interview with Father Marco Pozza, chaplain of the prison of Padua. “I can’t say she a city-girl, because she is from a small town, but normal, educated normally, open to marrying, to starting a family.”

    The pope’s statement, part of excerpts from the new book published this week by Corriere della Sera, would seem to contradict a millennial Christian belief regarding Mary’s perpetual virginity.

    Many of the fathers of the Church taught that the Virgin Mary had either a formal “vow of perpetual virginity” or at least a commitment to lifelong virginity and they used this teaching to explain Mary’s confusion when the angel Gabriel announced to her that she would conceive and bear a son, whom she would name Jesus.

    Mary’s response to the angel — “How can this be since I do not know man?” (Lk 1:34) — would have been very strange, the fathers contended, if Mary had intended to have normal sexual relations with Joseph, her betrothed husband.

    As just one example, Saint Gregory of Nyssa, writing in the 4th century, argued:

    For if Joseph had taken her to be his wife, for the purpose of having children, why would she have wondered at the announcement of maternity, since she herself would have accepted becoming a mother according to the law of nature?

    Saint Augustine of Hippo adopted the same line of reasoning in his treatise on the Virgin Mary.

    “Mary answered the announcing angel: ‘How shall this be done, because I know not man?’ She would not have said this unless she had already vowed her virginity to God,” he wrote.

    The Lateran Council of 649 formally taught the doctrine of Mary’s perpetual virginity, a doctrine embraced by the Protestant reformers Martin Luther, John Calvin, Huldrych Zwingli, and John Wesley.

    In his book, Ave Maria, to be co-published by Rizzoli and the Libreria Editrice Vaticana, Pope Francis explores the Hail Mary prayer and emphasizes Mary’s normality.

    “One thing I imagine is that she loved the Scriptures: she knew the Scriptures, she had done catechesis in a family environment, from the heart,” Francis said.​

    “Then, after the conception of Jesus, she was still a normal woman: Mary is normal, she is a woman that any woman in this world can imitate,” he said.

    “No strange things in life, a normal mother: even in her virginal marriage, chaste in that frame of virginity, Mary was normal. She worked, went shopping, helped her Son, helped her husband: normal,”
    he added.

    “The angel does not say to Mary: “You are full of intellect, you are intelligent, you are full of virtue, you are an super-good woman”. No, he said, “You are full of graceˮ, that is, of gratuitousness, of beauty. Our Lady is the beauty par excellence. Beauty is one of the human dimensions that we too often neglect. We speak of truth, of goodness and leave beauty aside. Instead, it is as important as the others. It is important to find God in beauty”.

    In the book, the pope contrasted what he sees as Mary’s normality with an elite attitude that makes people feel superior to others.

    “Normality is living among the people and like the people. It is abnormal to live without roots in a people, without connection with a historical people,” he said. “In such conditions a sin — very much liked by Satan, our enemy — is born: the sin of the elite.”

    “The elite does not know what it means to live among the people and when I speak of the elite I do not mean a social class: I speak of an attitude of the soul,” Francis said. “One can belong to a Church elite.”

    “And the devil likes the elite,”
    he said.

    Dearest and most wonderful Mother, we offer reparation for the great sorrows caused Thee by our hard heartedness. Help us to persevere in our efforts with Thine unending intercession to be delivered from our sins that we may come to know, love and serve our Lord from the least of us to the greatest. Thou art crying for all Thy children who turn their backs upon Thy Divine Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. But most of all Thou dost weep that Thine own Vicar of Christ on earth is directing those placed in his care to that place prepared by God for the devil and his angels. Give us the strength and love to persevere in the same love to help bring them back from the precipice from which they are about to fall - into that place from which there is no return, no ending and no escape.

    Bergoglio seems to be running to a timeline, we have seen jewish reporters of the BBC going berserk at Hungary and Poland because they want to preserve their racial/cultural identity basis. If Bergoglio causes doubt and confusion in Christianity then the faith becomes invalid and void (for all intents and purposes).
    I just wonder if he intends pushing the 'mother earth' doctrine held by the greens and other marxists, along with a 'one world' nation system as opposed to the Virgin Mary who is the Mother of All Nations.
