Quote of the Day
The Blessed Virgin Mary sets an example for us to follow. She gave herself fully to God as His handmaid (servantslave) without keeping anything for herself. Her whole being was solely directed to God. De Montfort emphasises this with many metaphors.

He says, Mary is the pathway to Jesus, leading souls quickly and securely to Him. She is a magnet which attracts the Holy Spirit. She is the compass which always points to Christ, her Son. She is the echo of God: if you say “Mary”, she replies “God”: as when Elisabeth praised her and called her blessed because she had believed God’s message, Mary responded saying: “My soul glorifies the Lord… Holy be His Name”. (TD 225).
