It seems to me that nobody has penetrated the mystery of Christ in its depth except the Blessed Virgin. Saint Paul often speaks about "the understanding"....The secret that she pondered and kept in her heart, no tongue has been able to tell, nor pen translate. May this Mother of Grace form my heart, so that her little child be a living and striking image of her first-born, the Son of the Eternal, the One who was the perfect praise of the glory of his Father (Bl Elisabeth of the Trinity, Mary, Model of Interior Souls).

'O blessed heavenly souls! Help our misery and be our intercessors before the divine mercy that we may be given some of your joy and a share in this clear knowledge you posses' 

'I say, daughters, that we should set our eyes on Christ, our Good, and on His saints. There we shall learn true humility, the intellect will be enhanced, as I have said, and self-knowledge will not make one base and cowardly'
