Quote of the day, 27 August: St. Raphael Kalinowski

For, in the natural order of things, Mary through her Divine Maternity takes on the closest degree of relationship with God himself, who took a body from her body; furthermore, because she is a virgin, such a degree of consanguinity bestows on Mary the right not only of maternity but also of paternity over Christ. And this relation will last forever.

Saint Raphael Kalinowski
