Quote of the day: 4 February

Our Lady kept the Word of God and this Word often was mysterious.

She had the faithfulness of a simple child, and here is the tremendous shock of the Annunciation, the required participation; and she adheres to the Word of God proclaimed. The first thing Elizabeth will say is: Blessed are you because you have believed in the Word of God. By believing, you have received it.

Her whole life has been a life of faithfulness. She was faithful to God’s thought and she realized it. God’s will was manifested to her, she followed God in his successive wills.

Flexibility was required to follow the movements of Love, of souls, of his son, the movement of the Holy Trinity, all the way to Calvary…

She was faithful to the Love that had conquered her.

Blessed Marie-Eugène of the Child Jesus
