J.M.J. "If, for example, every soul in the state of grace is an adopted child of God and a temple of the Holy Spirit, the Blessed Virgin is so par excellence and in the most complete manner, because the Triune God communicated Himself to her in the highest decree possible for a simple creature, to such a degree that Mary's dignity, according to St. Thomas, touches 'the threshold of the infinite' (cf. Ia, q. 25, a. 6, ad 4)."
--Father Gabriel of Saint Mary Magdalen, O.C.D. (1893-1952)
