True devotion to Mary/the Rosary/consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is a means of imitating her - I have found that through contemplation of the mysteries and careful praying of the Hail Mary that I am taken inwards into the interior castle of the soul, a place of peace, a fortress where no person nor any circumstances can penetrate. We become like Mary 'pondering these things in our hearts'. Christ comes to dwell in this interior castle and we are illuminated by Divine Love. Here we praise, adore and worship the savior of the world. It is like a hidden tabernacle, a hidden church within where God is constantly adored. Devotion to Mary is Christological. I wished I had discovered this true path to Jesus much earlier in my life as it would have saved me a lot of pain. But God is good and has drawn me closer through His mother, Mary, mother of sweetness and light. True devotion to Mary leads to interior peace even in the most horrendous of persecutions even in a concentration camp. St Maximilian Kolbe pray for us.
