The Fast of St. Mary
For two thousand years the Church has preserved the memory of the Virgin Mary as the prototype of all Christians - model of what we are to become through Christ. St. Mary was truly pure and unconditionally obedient to God. The tradition of the Church holds that St. Mary remained a virgin all her life. While lifelong celibacy is not a requirement for all Christians to follow, St. Mary's spiritual purity (her whole hearted devotion to God) is certainly to be emulated.
