St. Bernardine of Siena on the nobility of the Blessed Virgin Mary
On this the 20th day of Something About Mary, and the feast of St. Bernardine of Siena it is nice to read how this saint honored Our Blessed Mother.
Here's an excerpt... "the Evangelists describe in this Maiden every distinction, gift, power, nobility, and dignity which might be in any human individual born according to the flesh, it is incumbent upon us, following their witness, to prefer Her to all princes and princesses, queens and kings, emperors and empresses, and all powers, tribes, and tongues of the whole universe. That the whole world, after the fall of our first parents, was kept in being by God out of love of the Blessed Virgin."
