Mater Admirabilis – Ora Pro Nobis

2015.03.14 Mater admirabilis

What do we admire most about our Mother?

Her humility.

“Her most humble eyes held God in such a way captive, that this Blessed Virgin, with a kind of most sweet violence, drew the Word Himself of God the Father into her womb….

Where on earth could so beautiful a Virgin be found, who could allure the King of heaven by her eyes, and by a holy violence lead Him captive, bound in the chains of love?”

-Extracted from the Glories of Mary by St. Alphonsus de Liguori
