"At first, it seemed to me that I should distance myself a bit from the Marian devotion of my childhood in order to focus more on Christ. Thanks to St. Louis de Montfort, I came to understand that true devotion to the Mother of God is actually Chritocentric; indeed, it is very profoundly rooted in the mystery of the Blessed Trinity, and the mysteries of the Incarnation and Redemption."~Bl. Pope John Paul II

Mary dispenses all the graces we need

"After Jesus, who is the only Mediator, Mary is the mediatrix: as Jesus continually intercedes with the Father in heaven on our behalf, so Mary intercedes with Jesus for us; she obtains and dispenses to us all the graces we need."~Fr. Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalen, O.C.D. (A Beligian Carmelite priest, teacher, and spiritual director now deceased)
