Marian thought for December
«The faithful, living in the liturgy the spirit of Advent, by thinking about the inexpressible love with which the Virgin Mother awaited her Son, are invited to take her as a model and to prepare themselves to meet the Savior who is to come.» (Marialis Cultus, n.4)
St. Pio of Pietrelcina
"When passing before an image of the Madonna one should say: I greet you, oh Mary. Greet Jesus for me."
