St. Sophronius on the Theotokos

St. Sophronius of Jerusalem ca. 560-638

…Mary, holy and bright and of godly mind and free of every taint, whether in body or soul or thought… This is why the holy Virgin was taken and sanctified in both body and soul, and thus assisted in the Incarnation of the Creator because she was pure and undefiled and without taint. (Synodical Letter 2.3.1: Christological Profession of Faith)
