Virginity is a virtue

The Church Father and Saint Methodius of Olympus (Μεθόδιος Πατάρων, Мефодий Патарский), ca 260 — 311 AD) was a Christian bishop, ecclesiastical author, and martyr.

S. Methodii Patarensis Convivium decem virginum, sive de castitate

Virginity of Jesus Christ
Methodius taught that Jesus Christ remained a virgin His whole life as an example for men:
The Banquet of the Ten Virgins; or Concerning Chastity, Discourse I.— Marcella
Chapter V.—Christ, by Preserving His Flesh Incorrupt in Virginity, Draws to the Exercise of Virginity; The Small Number of 313Virgins in Proportion to the Number of Saints.

What then did the Lord, who is the Truth and the Light, take in hand when He came down from heaven? He preserved the flesh which He had taken upon Him incorrupt in virginity, so that we also, if we would come to the likeness of God and Christ, should endeavour to honour virginity. For the likeness of God is the avoiding of corruption. And that the Word, when He was incarnate, became chief Virgin, ...

The Banquet of the Ten Virgins; or Concerning Chastity, Discourse VIII. —Thekla
Chapter I.—Methodius’ Derivation of the Word Virginity: παρθενία.Wholly Divine; Virtue, in Greek—ἀρετή, Whence So Called.
Well, then, let us first say, beginning from the origin of the name, for what cause this supreme and blessed pursuit was called παρθενία, what it aims at, what power it has, and afterwards, what fruits it gives forth. For almost all have been ignorant of this virtue as being superior to ten thousand other advantages of virtue which we cultivate for the purification and adornment of the soul. For virginity (παρθενία) is divine by the change of one letter (παρθενίαπαρθεΐα), as she alone makes him who has her, and is initiated by her incorruptible rites like unto God, than which it is impossible to find a greater good, removed, as it is, from pleasure and grief; and the wing of the soul sprinkled by it becomes stronger and lighter, accustomed daily to fly from human desires.

Άγιος Ιερομάρτυς Μεθόδιος Επίσκοπος Πατάρων
το Συμπόσιον ή Περί Αγνείας
Η παρθενία είναι ουράνιος αρετή. Οδηγεί σε αφθαρσία και ομοίωση προς τον «αρχιπάρθενον» Χριστόν. Η λέξη παρθενία σημαίνει «παρθεΐα» (παρά τον Θεόν). Και είναι η δύναμη η οποία φέρει σε συνάντηση και ένωση με τον Θεόν. Η παρθενία και η αγνότητα δεν είναι μόνον η περί τα γενετήσια εγκράτεια, αλλά η αποφυγή παντός κακού. Ο Άγιος Μεθόδιος παρ' ότι εξυμνεί την παρθενία δεν μειώνει τον «εν Κυρίω» Γάμον, ως μέσον και οδόν προς εκπλήρωση της τελειότητος. «Επειδή το μέλι -λέγει- είναι γλυκύ δεν σημαίνει ότι τα άλλα είδη είναι πικρά» .
S. Methodius Olympi, Convivium decem virginum, Oratio VIII Tecla
Свщмч. Меѳодій Патарскій, Пиръ десяти дѣвъ или о дѣвствѣ, Рѣчь VIII. Ѳекла.
Глава 1.
Производство слова παρϑενία (дѣвство) въ смыслѣ почти обожествленія. Добродѣтель (ἀρετή) почему такъ называется?
Итакъ начнемъ рѣчь прежде всего съ самаго названія, почему этотъ высшій и блаженный образъ жизни названъ дѣвствомъ; за тѣмъ, каковъ онъ, и какую имѣетъ силу, и наконецъ — какіе приноситъ плоды. Ибо почти всѣ едва ли знаютъ о немъ, хотя онъ превосходнѣе множества другихъ свойствъ добродѣтели, какими мы стараемся очищать и украшать душу.Дѣвство (παρϑενία) чрезъ перемѣну одной буквы получаетъ названіе почти обожествленія (παρϑεΐα), такъ какъ оно одно уподобляетъ Богу владѣющаго имъ и посвященнаго въ его нетлѣниыя тайны, выше чего невозможно найти другаго блага, столь чуждаго (мірской) радости и печали, которымъ оживляясь крылья души поистинѣ возрастаютъ и дѣлаются легкими, привыкая ежедневно возлетать выше человѣческихъ заботъ.
Обоження – обожествлення – обоготворення – обожнення
Грецький термін θέωσις вживається на означення правди про наділення людині через Божу благодать найтіснішого онтологічного поєднання з Божим життям, що св. Петро назвав участю-співпричастям (гр. κοινωνία) у Божій природі (2 Пт. 1:4), а численні святі Отці — «стати богом» по благодаті. Це один із найсміливіших висловів грецької богословської традиції, і майже в кожній модерній мові спостерігаємо вагання, як його перекласти: сильнішим терміном (напр., deificatio і т. п.) чи загальним (напр., divinizatio і т. п.). За кожною з цих позицій, як і за українськими варіянтами обоженняй обожествлення, можна наводити чимало аргументів за і проти. Кожен із них передає якийсь аспект цього таїнства й оминає якесь одне його спотворення, але наражається на інше.
Святой Мефодий Патарский, Пир десяти дев или о девстве, Речь VIII. Фекла
Глава I. Производство снова παρθενία (девство) в смысле почти обожествления. Добродетель (αρετή) почему так называется?
Итак начнем речь прежде всего с самого названия, почему этот высший и блаженный образ жизни назван девством; затем, каков он, и какую имеет силу, и наконец - какие приносит плоды. Ибо почти все едва ли знают о нем, хотя он превосходнее множества других свойств добродетели, какими мы стараемся очищать и украшать душу.Девство (παρθενία) чрез перемену одной буквы получает название почти обожествления (παρθεΐα), так как оно одно уподобляет Богу владеющего им и посвященного в его нетленные тайны, выше чего невозможно найти другого блага, столь чуждого (мирской) радости и печали, которым оживляясь крылья души поистине возрастают и делаются легкими, привыкая ежедневно возлетать выше человеческих забот.

Saint Thecla, Virgin and Martyr, the most famous of virgin martyrs
The Power of Thecla and Her Sto
Saint Thecla (Θέκλα), born ca 30 AD, died 1st century AD, was a follower of Paul the Apostle. According to the apocryphal Acts of Paul and Thecla, Thecla was a young noble virgin who listened to Paul's "discourse on virginity" and became Paul's follower and a Disciple of Paul's teachings and Ministry. Thecla's mother, and her fiancé Thamyris, became concerned that Thecla would follow Paul's demand "that one must fear only one God and live in chastity", and punished both Paul and Thecla. She was miraculously saved from being burned at the stake by the onset of a storm, and traveled with Paul to Pisidian Antioch. There a nobleman named Alexander desired Thecla and attempted to take her by force. Thecla fought him off, assaulting him in the process, and was put on trial for assaulting a nobleman. She was sentenced to be eaten by wild beasts, but was again saved by a series of miracles when the female beasts protected her against her male aggressors. In Ma'loula, Syria, there is a Greek Orthodox nunnery of St. Thecla, Deir Mar Takla, built near what is said to be her cave tomb, reached by stairs in the mountainside, a pilgrimage site with a holy well. The local legend is that the mountain opened miraculously to protect Thecla from her persecutors. Ma'loula or Maaloula (Aramaic: ܡܥܠܘܠܐ‎, Arabic: معلولا‎), is a village in the Rif Dimashq Governorate in Syria. The town is located 56 km to the northeast of Damascus. With two other nearby towns Bakh'a (Arabic: بخعة‎) and Jubba'din (Arabic: جبّعدين‎‎), it is the only place where a dialect of the Western branch of the Aramaic language is still spoken. Scholars have determined that the Aramaic of Jesus belonged to this particular branch as well, however, as many media coverage has erroneously stated, it isn't the exact dialect Jesus of Nazareth spoke during the first century. Ma'loula represents, therefore, an important source for anthropological linguistic studies regarding first century Aramaic, hence, Jesus' own Aramaic dialect.

It is generally agreed that the historical Jesus primarily spoke Aramaic. Most of the apostles from the Galilee region also spoke Aramaic. The message of Christianity spread (primarily among Jewish Aramaic-speaking enclaves) throughout Roman Judaea, Roman Syria and Roman Mesopotamia, and even beyond the empire into Kerala, India in Aramaic (or Syriac; Aram is the Hebrew word for Syria)

Looking up to heaven, he sighed and said, "Ephphatha," which means, "Be opened!"
Mark 7:34

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

At the centre of today’s Gospel (Mk 7:31-37), there is a small but very important word. A word that — in its deepest sense — sums up Christ’s whole message and all his work. The Evangelist Mark records this word in the very language of Jesus in which Jesus spoke it so that we may hear it even more vividly. The word is “Ephphatha”, which means “be opened”. Let us look at the context in which it is used. Jesus was crossing the region known as Decapolis, between the coast of Tyre and Sidon and Galilee, hence an area that was not Jewish. They brought him a deaf-mute to be healed — evidently Jesus’ fame had spread that far. Jesus took him aside and touched his ears and his tongue and then, looking up to heaven, said with a deep sigh: “Ephphatha” which means “be opened”. Then the man immediately began to hear and to speak plainly (cf. Mk 7:35).

This, therefore is the historical and literal meaning of this word: thanks to Jesus’ intervention, the deaf-mute “was opened”; previously he had been closed, isolated, it had been very difficult for him to communicate. For him healing meant an “opening” to others and to the world, an opening which, starting with the organs of hearing and speech, involved his whole self and his life: he could at last communicate and thus relate in a new way.

However, we all know that a person’s closure and isolation do not only depend on the sense organs. There is an inner closure that affects the person’s inmost self, which the Bible calls the “heart”. It is this that Jesus came to “open”, to liberate, so as to enable us to live to the full our relationship with God and with others. This is why I said that this small word, “ephphatha — be opened”, sums up in itself Christ’s entire mission. He was made man so that man, rendered inwardly deaf and mute by sin, might be able to hear God’s voice, the voice of Love that speaks to his heart, and thus in his turn learn to speak the language of love, to communicate with God and with others. For this reason the word and the action of the “ephphatha” have been integrated into the Rite of Baptism as one of the signs that explain its meaning: the priest, touching the mouth and ears of the newly baptized person says: “ephphatha”, praying that he or she may soon hear the word of God and profess the faith. Through Baptism, the human person begins, so to speak, to breathe the Holy Spirit whom Jesus invoked from the Father with that deep sigh in order to heal the deaf-mute.

Let us now turn in prayer to Mary Most Holy, whose Nativity we celebrated yesterday. Because of her unique relationship with the Incarnate Word Mary was fully “open” to the Lord’s love, in her heart she was constantly listening to his word. May her maternal intercession obtain that every day, in faith, we experience the miracle of the “ephphatha”, to live in communion with God and with our brothers and sisters.
