The Immaculate Conception

"The Immaculate is so united to God through love that she rises not only above all the saints, but also above the angels, the archangels, the cherubim, and seraphim. Therefore, an unlimited love towards the Immaculate raises us up to her (and joins us to her through love) above...them all.....The more we belong to the Immaculate, the more confidently and freely we can approach the wounds of our Savior, the Eucharist, the most holy Heart of Jesus, and God our Father."
Saint Maximillian Kolbe

The Warmth of Man

"You [God] are a fire that takes away the coldness, illuminates the mind with its light, and causes me to know your truth and I know that you are beauty and wisdom itself. The food of angels, you give yourself to man in this fire of your love."

Saint Catherine of Sienna
