Let us live well, and the times will be good. We are the times. The way we are will the times be.
Mary was happy because she listened and kept God's word. She kept the truth in her spirit more than in the flesh of her womb.
Past and present I find in all movement of things; but it is not so in the Truth that remains forever; I only find the present in her, and this is incorruptible; this cannot be said of creatures.
(In Io. Ev. XXXVIII, 10)
