What did St. Ambrose mean by this?

The Lord permitted that some people should doubt his own origin rather than his Mother’s honour. De Inst.Virg. VI, 42.

My take would be that he would rather have had people wonder where he came from rather than question Mary.

I guess, putting St. Ambrose's words differently, Jesus would rather that people doubt his divinity than doubt his mother's chastity, so by keeping her virginity hidden, he kept his divinity hidden.
