Marian thought for April

"The unique and special character of the Blessed Virgin’s presence at Calvary and her perfect union with the Son in his suffering on the Cross seem to postulate a very particular sharing on her part in the mystery of the Resurrection. A fifth-century author, Sedulius, maintains that in the splendor of his risen life Christ first showed himself to his mother. In fact, she, who at the Annunciation was the way he entered the world, was called to spread the marvelous news of the Resurrection in order to become the herald of his glorious coming. Thus bathed in the glory of the Risen One, she anticipates the Church’s splendor" (Pope John Paul II, General audience May 21, 1997).

"Only a few words from the Virgin Mary have come down to us in the Gospels. But these few words are like heavy grains of pure gold. When they melt in the ardor of loving meditation, they more than suffice to bathe our entire lives in a luminous golden glow."

Saint Josemaría Escrivá

If you're proud of being a son or daughter of the Blessed Virgin Mary, ask yourself: "How many times have I showed my devotion to the Blessed Virgin during this day?"

St. Pio of Pietrelcina

"When passing before an image of the Madonna one should say: I greet you, oh Mary. Greet Jesus for me."
