Today we celebrate all the Holy Ancestors of Christ as listed in his genealogies including Eve the Matriarch, the "mother of all" (Genesis 2).
The New Testament preserves two different genealogies of Our Lord, one by Matthew (chapter 1) and the other by Luke (chapter3). Each one highlights different aspects of both Jesus' humanity and God's actions in salvation history.
The commemoration of all the holy ancestors of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham, the son of Adam, namely those fathers who pleased God and were found just according to the faith of the deceased, who didn’t receive the promises as fulfilled, but gazed on and hailed them from afar, from whom Christ was born according to the flesh, he who is the blessed God above all forever.
-- The Roman Martyrology
