To: Kolokotronis; NYer
From the Smalcald Articles (1536-37) of the Book of Concord (those articles have sometimes been called Martin Luther's last will and testament) Part I ¶4:

That the Son became man in this manner: he was conceived by the Holy Spirit without the cooperation of man and was born of the pure, holy, and virgin Mary.

The Smalcald Articles were written in Latin and in German, and the bolded words in the Latin text are rendered "ever-Virgin Mary". Regretably, most English translations are based on the German text.

A very appropriate discussion for this feast-day of the Presentation of Our Lord and the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
