Today October 11 is the feast day of the Maternity of Our Lady:

Unimaginable beforehand, incomprehensible afterward: the Incarnation is a glorious crowning to all of human history.

In a reversal of the creation of Eve from Adam’s side, here Mary could say on behalf of all humanity: “The Son of God is bone of our bone, and flesh of our flesh!” (Catechism Of The Council Of Trent For Parish Priests, (1934),  pg.48)

By divine intervention Mary’s maternity marks the beginning of the new creation in Christ (II Cor.5:17, Rev.21:5)
