St. Robert Bellarmine Quote - Defending the
Virgin's Mary Assumption into Heaven
And who, I ask could believe that the ark of holiness, the dwelling place of the Word of God, the temple of the Holy Spirit, could be reduced to ruin?
My soul is filled with horror at the thought that this virginal flesh which had begotten God, had brought Him into the world, had nourish and carried Him, could have been turned into ashes or given over to be the food of worms?
The Blessed Virgin Mary
