"And we know that the eunuch who was reading Isaiah the prophet,
 and did not understand what he read,
was not sent by the Apostle to an angel,
nor was it an angel who explained to him what he did not understand,
nor was he inwardly illuminated by the grace of God without the interposition of man;
on the contrary, at the suggestion of God, Philip, who did understand the prophet,
came to him, and sat with him, and in human words, and with a human tongue,
 opened to him the Scriptures."
 St. Augustine of Hippo ("On Christian Doctrine")

One can read the Bible and not understand it. This is where those who advocate for private interpretation of the Bible, missed  the boat.

I am very interested to know more. This is not just a quote, it is a prayer. Why 63?

The Mother of God contained the infinite God under her heart, the God whom no space can contain. Through her, the Trinity is adored, demons are vanquished, Satan is cast out of heaven, and our fallen nature is assumed into heaven.
