22nd May


At the time that Mary declared herself to exult in God her Saviour, she made no allusion to being His mother. This was the secret of her heart, that ineffable secret from which she derived a joy most hidden, a joy all her own, a joy which no one else could understand, and which to no one else could be imparted: Secretum meum mihi, secretum meum mihi [My secret to myself, my secret to myself]. All others could only remotely imagine that joy, and she, without a word, left them to imagine it.

Ibid. No. 7
