Luke 1:46-47 And Mary said: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior. . . .”
BVM: “My child, listen to my Son who only wishes that his children would return his love and live with him forever. Sadly, tragically, many today reject his free gift, grossly underestimating the value of the gift. This is the pearl of great price. Sell all you have, but you will never have enough to purchase it, for its value is far beyond any created thing, and indeed beyond all created things together. It is offered free because only my Son can afford the cost of your salvation. He alone is worthy to purchase souls. The only value souls have is found in Jesus. And yet so few realize what minuscule particles they are apart from him. But in him—oh, my child! If you could see the soul that loves my Son and accepts the gift of salvation with humble gratitude—my child, you would die a thousand happy deaths! There is no beauty in creation to compare with it! So count as nothing all that hinders you, all that distracts you, all that bars your way to Christ. Love him alone, and all shall be more perfect than you ever dreamed possible.”
Blessed Mother I thank you for this beautiful reminder of all that I am not—apart from Christ I am nothing! Jesus I thank you with the love and gratitude of your mother for the free gift of my salvation. Words cannot express it; I leave it to her to do so. Alleluia!
