One thought here that may help, we should not think of Sex between a married man and woman as a sin for it is not, which is scripture based. The key sin to me that Eve introduced was not sex but disobediance to God. Mary repaired that by her obediance.

Thanks for your good questions, Molly.You will actually find these matters addressed (e.g. in what sense is Mary a 'Mediatrix," and in what sense was Mary "full of grace") in later installments of this series, so haqng in there for now. Not sure what you mean by 'how could they be fruitful and multiply without sex?' are you referring to the New Adam (Christ) and the New Eve (Mary)? They are not the New Adam and the New Eve in the sense of having a conjugal union, but in the sense of having a spiritual union in the Holy Spirit that is fruitful unto salvation for all the rest of us. The Holy Spirit overshadows her, and the fruit of her womb is our Savior... again, more on all this in the installments to come!

How could they be fruitful and multiply the earth without sex. Adam say the male and female animals multiply and knew he was alone and couldn't do that alone. Growing up on a farm I know what he was looking at. According to the theory that Eves sin, which by the way Adam took part of as well, makes sex between two people of one flesh a sin. I personally need scripture proving this, Not just assumptions. Mary was overshadowed which means outweighed. As far as full of grace, she was Pregnant with Gods son, who alone overcame temptation and was free from sin. If life by Mary is true, we don't need Christ, the only mediator, We just need her. I guess I am confused by this, we need a co-mediator to the only mediator. None of this is biblically based teachings.
