Mary vs Eve
To set it up for you, it is about an imagined encounter between The Blessed Virgin Mary, pregnant with Child, and a sorrowful Eve, who has just been kicked out of Eden with her husband Adam. Mary says to her:
Do not be ashamed, do not grieve.
The former things have passed away,
Our God has brought us to a New Day.
See, I am with Child,
Through whom all will be reconciled.
O Eve! My sister, my friend,
We will rejoice together
Life without end.
