"Dear children! In this time of grace, I call all of you to renew prayer. Open yourselves to Holy Confession so that each of you may accept my call with the whole heart. I am with you and I protect you from the ruin of sin, but you must open yourselves to the way of conversion and holiness, that your heart may burn out of love for God. Give Him time and He will give Himself to you and thus, in the will of God you will discover the love and the joy of living. Thank you for having responded to my call."
"If Mary is united with God and full of grace, then it is only because God looked upon His handmaid's lowliness and He was delighted by her humility. The Blessed Mother is a perfect example of the attitude of spiritual poverty."
(Open Wide the Door to Christ, pg. 195
