The Emperor's clothes

“Daddy what is the Holy Virgin?” my youngest daughter asked me. I explained her that she is Mary, the mother of Jesus. Then she asked: “But she was his mother, how can she be a virgin?”. So I told her that that was just the miracle of the whole thing. She started giggling and asked me if grown-up people really believed that...

So sad she does not believe.
A truly beautiful woman Hashem did choose.

Hashem = mercy.

I love the word verification I have to type in. MOTHOU.

There is nothing sad about it, I'm proud of the way she thinks! She's much further at 13 then many older people.
