Mary’s Corruptibility Would Dishonor Jesus

"Jesus did not wish to have the body of Mary corrupted after death, since it would have redounded to his own dishonor to have her virginal flesh, from which he himself had assumed flesh, reduced to dust."

-St. Alphonsus Liguori
Pope Pius XII, Munificentissimus Deus #35, 1950
