The Mother of God--His Tabernacle

O Mother of God and Virgin ... you alone were vouchsafed the gifts of the Spirit in their totality, or rather, you alone held mysteriously in your womb, Him in Whom are the treasures of all these spiritual gifts; and became, inexplicably, His Tabernacle. ... You alone fulfilled all [the prophetic] visions, surpassing our human nature by means of your union with God; not just when you gave birth in a marvelous way, but also through the preceding fellowship with Him in everything good, which resulted from your utter purity.
