From, God Alone, The Collected Writings of St. Louis Marie de Montfort: "Mary was created only for God, and it is unthinkable that she should reserve even one soul for herself. On the contrary she leads every soul straight to God and to union with him. Mary is the wonderful echo of God. The more a person joins himself to her, the more effectively she units him to God. When we say 'Mary', she re-echoes 'God.'
