Do you love the Blessed Virgin? Then you should spend time with her.

Nobody will do it for you as well as you


Do you love the Blessed Virgin? Then you should spend time with her. How? By praying the Rosary properly. But, in the Rosary... we always repeat the same words! Always the same words? What about young lovers, don’t they always say the same things to each other? ...

The supernatural virtues would really grow in us if we only spent more time with Mary, who is our Mother! Let’s not hesitate to repeat throughout the day—with the heart, not necessarily with words—small, short prayers...

She is your Mother and you are her child. She loves you as if you were her only child in the world. Talk to her accordingly—tell her everything that happens to you, honor her, love her. Nobody will do it for you as well as you, if you don’t do it. I assure you that if you take this route, you will at once find all the love of Christ: and you will find yourself immersed in the ineffable life of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit...

You will be the Christian you sometimes dream of becoming—full of good works of charity and justice, happy and strong, understanding towards others and demanding of yourself.
