Thought of Saint Augustine
Let us love the Lord our God, let us love the Church. He, like a father; she, like a mother. He, like a master; she, like a servant. For we are the children of this very servant.
Mary did the will of the Father, and that is why it is greater for her to have been a disciple of Christ than to have been the mother of Christ.
Great misery is the proud man, but greater mercy is the humble God.
(De cat. rud. IV, 8)
