Solid devotion to our Blessed Lady


#1

An example of solid devotion to our Blessed Lady:

Devotion to our Blessed Lady is only to establish a more perfect devotion to Jesus Christ, and to provide an easy an secure means for finding Jesus Christ.

Devotion to our Lady is necessary for us as a means of finding Jesus Christ perfectly, of loving Him tenderly, and of serving Him faithfully as only our Blessed Lady did.

Our blessed Lady walked with Jesus every step of her life and she is the greatest example of how to do that completely. Her soul Magnifies the Lord.

If we would go up to God, and be united with Him, we must use the same means He used to come down to us to be made Man and to impart His grace to us.

True devotion to our Lady consists in fulfilling our Christian duties, avoiding mortal sin, acting more out of love than with fear, praying to our Lady now and then, honoring her as Mother of God, yet without having any special devotion to her.

This devotion is an easy, short, perfect and secure way of attaining union with our Lord, in which union the perfection of a Christian consists.

It is an easy way: It is the way which Jesus Christ Himself trod in coming to us in which there is no obstacle in reaching Him.

It is true that we can attain divine union by other roads, but it is by many crosses and strange deaths, and many more difficulties we will find to overcome.

It is a short and perfect way: The Most High has come down to us perfectly and divinely, by the humble Mary without loosing anything of His Divinity and Sanctity.

This devotion is a secure means of going to Jesus Christ, because it is the very characteristic of our Blessed Lady to conduct us surely to Jesus.
