    Quote from "The Glories of Mary" by St. Alphonsus Liguori:

    Let us love her as much as St. Stanislaus
    Kostka, who loved this his dear mother
    so tenderly, that when he spoke of her, every
    one who heard him desired to love her also;
    he invented new titles by which he honored her
    ; he never commenced an action without
    first turning to her image and asking her bless
    ing; when he recited her office, her rosary, and
    other prayers, he repeated them with such
    affectionate earnestness, that he seemed speaking
    face to face with Mary; when he heard the Salve
    Regina sung, his soul and even his countenance
    was all on fire; when asked one day by a father
    of the society, as they were going together
    to visit an altar of the blessed Virgin, how
    much he loved her,"Father," he answered, "what
    can I say more than she is my mother ? " And
    that father tells us how the holy youth spoke
    these words with such tender emotion of voice,
    countenance, and heart, that he appeared not a
    man,but an angel discoursing the love of Mary.
