Saint Cyril of Alexandria is remembered as a bishop and doctor of The Church. Often cited as his most memorable contribution to The Faith is his defense of Mary as “The Theotokos”, translated as “The Mother of God”.
the bishop Cyril courageously taught
that Mary was the Mother of God.
May we who cherish this belief
receive salvation through the incarnation of Christ Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
