The wonderful truth about our Mother . . .
“It is very important that we do not allow Our Lady to be distanced from us by her Immaculate Conception, but to be brought closer to us. She is the one to teach us poor sinners because she is called the Refuge of Sinners. Our Lord did not give her to Saint John and say, ‘Now I am giving her to you, and she is the Mother of all the flawlessly holy ones.’ But he gave her to be the Mother of all persons . . . and he knew what was in man, what is in each one of us, our weaknesses as well as strengths.” (Mother Mary Frances)
