Fr. Phillips on Microchimerism

Ave Maria!
Ave Jesu Christe!
I encourage you to read Fr. Phillips blog post on Microchimerism: click here.

I am struck by the implications of what it means that cells from the body of the Lord Jesus Christ would have migrated up into the brain of the Blessed Virgin Mary and elsewhere in her body.

Likewise, the Blessed Mother's cells would have migrated into His body as she carried Him to birth.  Those cells would have been in His body on the Cross and rising from the Tomb.

I do not think many are prepared to discuss the theological implications of microchimerism and the meaning of the Son living his life in the Mother and the Mother living in the Son.

Let the ruminations ensue.
