Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary

Mary Consoles Eve (Sister Grace OCSO, 2005, © Sisters of the Mississippi Abbey)
Gen 3:15-20

I will put enmity between you and the woman,and between your offspring and hers;They will strike at your head,while you strike at their heel. To the woman he said: I will intensify your toil in childbearing;in pain you shall bring forth children.Yet your urge shall be for your husband,and he shall rule over you. To the man he said: Because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, You shall not eat from it, Cursed is the ground because of you!In toil you shall eat its yieldall the days of your life. Thorns and thistles it shall bear for you,and you shall eat the grass of the field. By the sweat of your browyou shall eat bread,Until you return to the ground,from which you were taken;For you are dust,and to dust you shall return. The man gave his wife the name “Eve,” because she was the mother of all the living.
