Quotes and Hymns in honor of the
Memorial of the Immaculate Heart of Mary
The world being unworthy to receive the Son of God directly from the hands of the Father, he gave his Son to Mary for the world to receive him from her.
— Saint Augustine
Ave Maris Stella
Mary must be known and openly revealed by the Holy Spirit so that Jesus may be known and loved through her. — Saint Louis de Montfort
Sing of Mary
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.

After the love which we owe Jesus Christ, we must give the chief place in our heart to the love of His Mother Mary.
