This morning I did a show with Sean Herriott on Morning Air with Relevant Radio. We discussed the ever-virginity of Mary. I promised to make available some of the resources I used. So here they are.
1) In Numbers 30 vows taken by married women showing that a pledge to abstain from sexual relations even within a marriage was not unheard of, even provided for in the Old Testament.
2) St. Jerome against Helvedius from around 380 AD. Helvedius dared to question the ever-virginity of Mary suggesting she had other children. St. Jerome blasts Hevedius and demonstrates the mind of the early Christians.
4) St. Thomas Aquinas with the reasons why Mary’s ever-virginity is affirmed by the Church.
5) The Perpetual Virginity of Mary by Bro. Anthony Opisso, M.D.
Of course there are many more but this is a beginning.
