In the Thursday Theotokia we say:
For He who was born is God,
born without pain from the Father,
and He was also born according to the flesh,
without pain for the Virgin.
Then, later in the same Theotokia, we say:
Upon her head was a crown of twelve stars,
she being with a child cried out in labor,
and in pain to give birth.
This is Mary,
the New heaven on earth..."
One part says it was painless and another says she cried out in pain. Why the apparent contradiction, and which was it really?
