Thank you, Brother, for that lovely post.
When meditating on the nativity of the Lord, I always visualized that Mary did not have a regular birth. But I thought that since Eve came from the side of Adam, that perhaps Jesus (the new Adam) came from the side of Mary (the new Eve). Just what came to me while meditating on the rosary over the years.
It didn't seem that she would suffer the pains of child birth as she was born without original sin (and the pains of child birth being a consequence of Eve's sin). It seemed to me that she would be kept perfect (in tact??) and that this would most definitely be a miraculous birth. It's just how I liked to visualize this during these joyful mysteries.
