Thought of Saint Augustine
Man was not created as an irrational animal bent toward the earth but, erect in stature, a reminder to look above.
(De Civ. Dei XXII, 24, 4)
Everything outside of us fluctuates with the storms and temptations of this age. But we need an interior desert where we gather ourselves and live of our faith.
(Sermo 47,25)
Mary believed, and what she believed was realized in her. Let us also believe, so that what she realized is also beneficial to us.
