She Surpassed Them All

"Many daughters have done nobly,
But you excel them all."

(Proverbs 31:29)

She had surpassed all the Biblical women of faith, with her humility, virtue and firm belief.

Sarah bore the son of the promise, Isaac. Mary bore the Son of God, God's promise of redemption and salvation.

Rebekah by her charity made to drink the thirsty servant of Abraham and his camels. Mary, in her charity desired to provide wine in the wedding at Cana, and inform her Son about it, who is the source of all satisfaction.

Rachel cunningly guided her Son Jacob to outwit Esau, so is Mary, who reared her Son who became submissive to her and to his foster father in Nazareth. By this he grew in wisdom and is greatly favored by God and men.

The mother of Moses hide him three months. When she couldn't anymore hide him, she cared for it in an ark and let it drift in the river, while his sister watches on. Mary kept her son thirty years, and let him go in the start of his public mission, yet she still look after her son, even to the cross.

Rahab helped the spies in their hiding and in their excursion within the walls of Jericho. Mary helped the apostles and all the believers in their hiding by praying with them for nine days.
