Something About Mary ~ Holy Exercise

Venerable Mary of Agreda

"She incited them to mental prayer, teaching them its excellence and necessity, because the noblest occupation of the reasonable creature is to raise his mind above created things to meditate on the divine, and that nothing should be preferred to this holy exercise."

TheDivine Life of the Most Holy Virgin, (Tan Books), 221.

What a beautiful image! And that quote is beautiful, too. Thank you for encouraging all of us to post on Mary during May. It was wonderful to ponder more about her, as well as be inspired by so many lovely posts on other blogs. Have a blessed Monday, and happy June! Can you believe it's June?! I can't ...
