27th May


Note how Mary, while proclaiming her own blessedness, ascribed all the glory to God alone. She declared that all generations should call her blessed, not, indeed, because she herself had done anything, but because the Lord had done great things to her. She presented herself merely as a creature who received everything from her Creator; and so she adopted language at all points consistent with perfect truth and perfect humility.

Ibid. No. 12
