“And the Angels render homage unto her”
Almighty God, Omnipotent and Infinitely Wise, had to choose his Mother. What would you have done, if you had had to choose yours? I think that you and I would have chosen the mother we have, filling her with all graces. That is what God did: and that is why, after the Blessed Trinity, comes Mary.
“Don’t those who are in love always say the same things to each other?”
The holy Rosary is a powerful weapon. Use it with confidence and you will be amazed at the results. (The Way, 558)
“Wear on your breast the holy scapular of Carmel”
Wear on your breast the holy scapular of Carmel. There are many excellent Marian devotions, but few are so deep- rooted among the faithful, and have received so many blessings from the Popes. Besides, how maternal this sabbatine privilege is! (The Way, 500)
“Tell her about everything that happens to you”
—Do you want to love Our Lady? —Well, get to know her. How? —By praying her Rosary well. But, in the Rosary... we always say the same things! —Always the same? And don’t those who are in love always say the same things to each other?... (Holy Rosary, Fourth Prologue)
