25 Monday – Annunciation of the Lord
Mary is the saint among the saints, the blessed above all others (Gaudete et exsultate 176).
`Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month. For nothing is impossible with God.’
Think of all that heaven has done, and what our Lady has done, to attach our hearts lovingly to her, the Blessed among Women. Consider, God made her my Mother, he gave her a motherly heart, motherly rights and motherly power. God wants us to be attached to his and my Mother. At the same time he made me her child. Notice how ordinary people feel drawn to the Blessed among Women. God created people with a heart that is drawn to the Blessed among Women. (Retreat 1934 – JK)
