The Peace of God that all belong to the light,
Thank you to express your doubt in a so open way, of course to say that Mary is the Mother of God does not contradict at all the fact that God is who
God was not created but the Creator, Jesus as primogenit of God was not created too, since if of the same nature of the father, was generated by him.
However, in the moment in which Son of God becomes human, and as he decided to do that in the most normal possible way he chose some very special
woman to be his mother.
Any human being has a Mother and Jesus and the father decided that it was quite convenient that he would have a mother. Through Jesus God decided to
experience the human condition at all, not partially, to understand also the weekness of the man and in that way be able to perform a perfect
Mary is the mother of Jesus, but Jesus is only one God with the Father &
Holy spirit, so these three persons are parts of God, none of them is separable of the other two, they are of the same nature.
In that way being Jesus part of God, it is God with us, that is the meaning of his name jesus or his title (Emmanuel).
In that way Mary is the mother of God, is just a title and never was declared by the Church as a Goddes or the fourth person of God, that is something
absolutely ridiculous but unfortunately is part of the rethoric of the most extremist sectors of the Protestantism.
This problem was clearly solved in the Council of Ephesus at 431 A.C:
Canon 1: "If anyone does not confess that God is truly Emmanuel, and that on this account the Holy Virgin is the Mother of God (for according to
the flesh she gave birth to the Word of God become flesh by birth), let him be anathema."
This is accepted by Catholics, Orthodoxs, Anglicans, Episcopalians, Armenians, Egyptian and Abyssinian Copts.
In conclusion St Mary is mother of God not since she birth God but since God adopted her as his mother, he wanted to have a mother and she was the one
chosen for her santity to that special condition.
It is well very known that St Mary was one of the virgins dedicated to the temple when the Angel Gabriel visited her to announce the immaculate
conception and she knew that she must married Joseph to give a family to Jesus.
The story of the parents of Mary and her childhood is contained in the ancient Christian traditions and in the books of the Second Canon, the so
called Deuterocanonic books: the Gospels of the chilhood.
Thanks for your atention,
