"Teach me wisdom and knowledge, for in your commands I trust. Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I hold to your promise." Psalm 119:66,67
"If we took to Mary in all circumstances, we will immediately receive wise inspirations: Be patient, kind, charitable; comport yourself well, suffer voluntarily, and offer your pains to the Lord. Hope and love always, and give your life authentic Christian meaning." --Pope Paul VI
"If you remain in My word, you will truly be My disciples, and you will know the Truth and the Truth will set you free." --Jesus, as quoted in John 8:31
What better example than Mary of "know the Truth and the Truth will set you free." Mary knew and knows still intimately who her Son was, is, and always shall be. She is a perfect example of the pure disciple of Christ. Christ has endowed His mother with special gifts as the queen of Heaven. She leads all with her patience, kindnes, and charity. She comported herself perfectly, and certainly suffered voluntarily. Through her Truth came into the world and that Truth can set all of us free.
