23rd May


Mary was the first in the New Testament to confess her faith in the divinity of Jesus Christ. She confessed it long before St. Peter, who, for having said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God”, merited to be made the foundation stone of the Church. Indeed, before Christ was born she confessed Him to be God; before He could have announced Himself to all the world by His preaching, or confirmed it by His miraculous works. For this she fully deserved the praise which Elizabeth pronounced, “Blessed are you because you have believed”.

Ibid. No. 8
