The Way to Jesus? Always Mary!: Monday, August 3, 2015

J.M.J. "158. Show me a new road to our Lord, pave it with all the merits of the Saints, adorn it with their heroic virtues, illuminate and enhance it with the splendor and beauty of the angels, have all the Angels and Saints there to guide and protect those who wish to follow it. Give me such a road and truly, truly, I boldly say--and I am telling the truth--that instead of this road, perfect though it be, I would still choose the immaculate way of Mary. It is a way, a road without stain or spot, without original sin or actual sin, without shadow or darkness. When our loving Jesus comes in glory once again to reign upon earth--as He certainly will--He will choose no other way than the Blessed Virgin, by whom He came so surely and so perfectly the first time. The difference between His first and His second coming is that the first was secret and hidden, but the second will be glorious and resplendent. Both are perfect because both are through Mary. Alas, this is a mystery which we cannot understand, 'Here let every tongue be silent.'"

--Saint Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort, Treatise on True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin, 158.
