FINDING MARY

" When the Holy Spirit, her spouse, finds Mary in a soul, he hastens there and enters ... He gives himself generously to that soul according to the place it has given to .... But no one can find Mary who does not look for her."Treatise on true Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary"- St. Louis de Montfort
"Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect." Jesus imperatively commanded in Matthew 5:48 and that's a strong order from him for us to be Saints..but how can we be a Saint if we continue to ignore His mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary? and Mary a creature of God like us. is a perfect example as model.. will all her evangelical virtues listed as follows:
Most Pure (Mt. 1:18, 20, 23; Lk 1:27,34)
Most Prudent (Lk 2:19, 51)
Most Humble (Lk 1:48)
Most Faithful (Lk 1:45; Jn 2:5)
Most Devout (Lk 1:46-7; Acts 1:14)
Most Obedient (Lk 1:38; 2:21-2, 27)
Most Poor (Lk 2:7)
Most Patient (Jn 19:25)
Most Merciful (Lk 1:39, 56)
Most Sorrowful (Lk 2:35)

It is almost next to impossible to be a Saint with out a strong devotion to the Virgin Mary.. from the Apostles..to the early Church Father..and all the faithfuls who was later canonized by the church as Saints followed her example..A number of popes have made Marian themes a key part of their papacy, e.g. Leo XIII issued a record eleven encyclicals on the rosary, Pius XII invoked the first (and to date only) case of ex cathedra papal infallibility to establish a Marian dogma and John Paul II built his personal coat of arms around the Marian Cross...Marian Popes through the ages who advocated for a strong devotion and veneration to the Mother of God.. they themselves became Saints..one of the child seers of Fatima Jacinta Marto in her death bed, said that God wants a strong devotion to his Mother the Blessed Virgin Mary and to her Immaculate Heart'' and God gives graces through her Immaculate Heart and the peace of the world is entrusted to it..
