Mary overcame in the way women are called to conquer—
by giving birth to conquerors,
or by giving birth to daughters who will give birth to conquerors.
And this explains how the Magnificat can have been
composed by a woman
and still be so gloriously militant.
Godly child-bearing is militant.
The seed of the woman has crushed the dragon’s head.
~Douglas Wilson, God Rest Ye Merry, p26~
