Mary Overcame

“Mary overcame in the way women are called to conquer — by giving birth to conquerors, or by giving birth to daughters who will give birth to conquerors. And this explains how the Magnificat can have been composed by a woman and still be so gloriously militant. Godly child-bearing is militant. The seed of the woman has crushed the dragon’s head” (God Rest Ye Merry, p. 26).

  1. Consider Jael:

    “Most blessed of women be Jael,
    the wife of Heber the Kenite,
    of tent-dwelling women most blessed.
    He asked for water and she gave him milk;
    she brought him curds in a noble’s bowl.
    She sent her hand to the tent peg
    and her right hand to the workmen’s mallet;
    she struck Sisera;
    she crushed his head;
    she shattered and pierced his temple.
    Between her feet
    he sank, he fell, he lay still;
    between her feet
    he sank, he fell;
    where he sank,
    there he fell—dead.”

    (Judges 5:24-27)
