"Brick by brick he is rebuilding what was devastated"
from St. Peter Julian Eymard with HT to The Mary Vitamin
“And now, she not only begs her Son for holy vocations, but she guards and protects them. The priest is Mary’s privileged child. It is she who trains him to piety in youth and shields his virtue; she it is who nourishes his fervor, who leads him by the hand to the foot of the altar and presents him to the Bishop, as once she offered Jesus in the Temple. She encourages him in the thousand sacrifices of study, in his combats against fear of the priestly responsibility. The priest formed by Mary!_O good and holy priest, how well Jesus will receive thee!”
Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament, 138-9.
