By no means do I want to start a lengthy post about the Immaculation conception but can someone help answer my question that came up while I was reading this book.

At the bottom of page 86 of "For the life of the World" Fr. Alexander Schememann states that

"The Orthodox Church rejects the dogma of the Immaculate Conception precisely because it makes Mary a miraculous ""break"" in this long and patient growth of love and expectation, of this ""hunger for the living God "" which fills the Old Testament."

Can someone expound on this comment for me so I may have a better understanding?

Thanks,
