Saturday, June 20, 2015: Mary, Adopted by the Father

J.M.J. The Reverend Louis Bouyer (1913-2004), considering the "Hail, Mary," wrote: "Therefore, we then say to her: 'The Lord is with you,' because she is by this very fact the creature reconciled with the Father, not only free from everything that would separate her from Him, but positively and really adopted by Him, in that new covenant which is the eternal covenant."

In Introduction to the Spiritual Life, Foreword by David Fagerberg, Introduction by Michael Heintz (Notre Dame, Indiana: Christian Classics, 2013), 120.
