Better and more than anyone else, we who are doubly the children of Mary should imitate her, to be enriched as faithful children with the fruits of her maternity; seeking the unum necessarium, the one thing necessary for salvation, to steer our life’s ship without danger through the hard passage of this world, safe from the disturbances of our times; and finally, obtaining for all of humanity an end to distress and the dawn of light upon the world’s horizon.
Saint Raphael Kalinowski
Mother of God, Hope of the World (1906)
