Mary, the Earthly Paradise of Jesus Christ: Friday, July 10, 2015

J.M.J. "6. I declare with the saints: Mary is the earthly paradise of Jesus Christ the new Adam, where He became man by the power of the Holy Spirit, in order to accomplish in her wonders beyond our understanding. She is the vast and divine world of God where unutterable marvels and beauties are to be found. She is the magnificence of the Almighty where He hid His only Son, as in His own bosom, and with Him everything that is most excellent and precious. What great and hidden things the all-powerful God has done for this wonderful creature, as she herself had to confess in spite of her great humility, 'The Almighty has done great things for me.' The world does not know these things because it is incapable and unworthy of knowing them.

--Saint Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort, Treatise on True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin, 6.
