Ad Jesum per Mariam
In the past, I had a very filial devotion for the Virgin Mary. I would put in her hands all my actions of piety, my religious life, all obedience and charity, for her to administer according to her wisdom and predilections, and for me to obtain all the merits of the grace of God. Little by little, this devotion was eclipsed a bit by another one, more radiant and more productive. During my years of novitiate and ministry that God gave me, it was the Love of Our Lord that fed and filled my soul.
