“What a joy to remember that she is our Mother! Since she loves us and knows our weakness, what have we to fear?” - Saint Therese
“Do not be afraid of loving the Blessed Virgin too much. You can never love her enough. And Jesus will be very happy, because the Blessed Virgin is His Mother.”
“With all my heart I consecrated myself to the Blessed Virgin Mary, and asked her to watch over me. She seemed to look lovingly on her Little Flower and to smile at her again.”
"It is true that Our Lady is Queen of Heaven and earth, but at the same time she is more Mother than Queen."
“O, how I love the Blessed Virgin. If I were a priest how often would I speak of her. She is described as unapproachable, whereas she should be pointed to as a model. She is more of a Mother than a Queen.”
“I do not tremble when I see my weakness, for the treasures of a mother belong also to her child, and I am thy child, O dear Mother Mary.”
I had a wonderful time visiting my Mother's House in Washington D.C. and I hope you can visit her there someday.
