Is Mary perfect?

Mary is blessed (Lu 1:28, 46-47) among all women and deserves our respect and reverence, but not to be worshipped. She is not more perfect than Adam & Eve, as “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God”. She needs salvation as all of mankind. But, to be chosen by God, for him to dwell incarnate in her virgin womb is “once in a lifetime” blessing.

More important though is the realization that she was a “surrogate” mother of Jesus. There was never an egg from Mary or sperm from anyone else’s in the conception of Jesus. Christ came “from above” (John 8:23) along the genealogy of Adam and kingly/priestly line.
