Christ Our Pascha: Catechism of the Ukrainian Catholic Church

Our Most Holy Lady, the Mother of God and Ever-Virgin Mary

185 – Comparing Mary with Eve, Church tradition highlights the obedience of the Virgin Mary in contrast with the disobedience of our fore-mother Eve. Eve is the mother of all the living; Mary (the new Eve) is the Mother of the Source of life. Eve lost life (dying in death); Mary accepted and offered the Life, who in the Resurrection overcame death. Eve listened to the serpent and lost Paradise for humankind; Mary listened to God and returned Paradise in Christ. Adam was before Eve, but Mary, the New Eve, was before the New Adam, the Christ: (Irenaeus of Lyons, Against Heresies, III, 22, 4: PG 7, 958-959.)
 
While Mary hymned praise to the one whom she bore, and caressed the babe whom she alone brought forth, Eve, who had given birth in pain, heard her, and rejoicing, said to Adam: “A virgin has given birth to the Redemption of the curse; who has caused this hoped-for news to ring out in my ears? Her voice alone has released me from my torment. Her childbirth has wounded the one who wounded me. She is the one whom the son of Amos prophesied as the rod of Jesse. It has brought forth a branch on which I shall feed and not die, Mary, full of grace.”(Roman the Melodist, Second Kontakion on the Nativity, 3.)
