April 8 – Our Lady of Basella (Italie, 1356) - Saint Julie Billiart (Foundress of the Institute of the Sisters of Our Lady, d. 1816) 

Renouncing all her potentials, she obtained their full achievement beyond all hope 

 

No one ever has given up everything that they had as much as Mary to let God alone reign. And God has never given anyone more power than Mary to cooperate with Him.

Mary renounced all her potentials, but she obtained achievements beyond all hope. By cooperating in her body, she became the mother of the Lord; by cooperating in her mind, she became his handmaid and his spouse.
