Video of the Day- Mary, Blessed Art Thou Among Women
The Church Fathers thought of Genesis 3:15 as a miniature Gospel. The Fathers taught that Jesus was the seed of the woman in Genesis 3:15 as He is the only human born without a human father. Christ is the new Adam and The Blessed Virgin is the new Eve. There are multiple references to this prophecy in the Old Testament. Saint Elizabeth was the first person to prophecy this in the New Testament at the Visitation, to which Mary responded: "henceforth all generations shall call me blessed" (Luke 1:48).
