May 31 - Visitation of the Virgin Mary 

Even in the most depraved executioner, a Marian fragment remains



Q - Pope Francis said to the priests and religious of Naples on Saturday, March 21: "A priest, a monk, or a nun who does not love the Blessed Virgin, who does not pray the Holy Virgin—who does not pray the Rosary—if that person does not want the Mother, the Mother will not give him her Son." Can you explain this further?

R - It reminds me of the dialogue written by Bernanos in the Diary of a Country Priest. The old priest wants to share with his young colleague his mission of facilitating the work of grace in people’s hearts. “Do you pray to the Virgin Mary? Not mechanically, without thinking about it… Do you want to believe that in our old world crushed by sin, evil, and violence, there is a pure source, so clear and pure that it could not even see its own reflection, made for the sheer joy of the Father?”

... Even in the most depraved executioner, there is still a small immaculate and Marian fragment. It is our job to discover it, to bring it out of the mud, to the surface. The Rosary helps us view the world with the confidence of a God who inspired the faith of Mary. "Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you ..."
