I need your help to get the most out of this thought….
In reading the Te Deum, I got to the lines:
When you became man to set us free you did not spurn the Virgin’s womb.
You overcame the sting of death, and opened the kingdom of heaven to all believers.
Jesus came to us through the Virgin, He opened her womb to give us the gift of salvation, by dying on the Cross and opening the gates of heaven.
Is there a theological parallel in these two openings? Can somebody point me to it? Thanks!
