I think down the years having had a Devotion to Our Lady the one thing that has always touched me closest is when I have seen in her life that I can take and translate into my own. I think in her motherhood we are shown the path of giving birth to Christ in our own hearts as we are translated , from one degree of glory unto the next into the image of God. We too give birth to Christ. God became man that we might become God. I read on lovely thing recently from a visionary who said that when he praised Mary she said that everything she has comes from God as a grace. I just think that humilty is so beautiful. Another visionary asked Our Lady why she appeared so beautiful? To which Mary replied, 'I am beautiful because I love'. We can be beautiful too.
