Thou art all fair O Mary...

And the orginal stain is not in thee.

O Mary!

by thy holy and immaculate conception,

make my body pure

and my spirit holy.

O Mary!  Conceived without sin,

pray for us who have recourse to thee,

and for those who do not,

especially the enemies of the Church

and those recommended to thee.

O Mary!

I declare with the saints: Mary is the earthly paradise of Jesus Christ the new Adam, where he became man by the power of the Holy Spirit, in order to accomplish in her wonders beyond our understanding. She is the vast and divine world of God where unutterable marvels and beauties are to be found. She is the magnificence of the Almighty where he hid his only Son, as in his own bosom, and with him everything that is most excellent and precious. What great and hidden things the all-powerful God has done for this wonderful creature, as she herself had to confess in spite of her great humility, "The Almighty has done great things for me." The world does not know these things because it is incapable and unworthy of knowing them. - True Devotion

A blessed and happy feast day to all of my readers.
