Ten Quotes about Mary for the Feast of the Annunciation

Mary’s example of faith echoes through the centuries for Christians, showing us a perfect example of following Jesus, taking up our crosses, and preaching the Gospel at all times! From the Cross, Jesus gave her to us, the Church. What a gift! Today, as we commemorate Our Lady’s fiat at the Annunciation, check out what the saints — and Mary herself — have had to say over the centuries and reflect with us today!

“Eve was a thorn, wounding, bringing death to all; in Mary we see a rose, soothing everybody’s hurts.”
St. Bernard of Clairvaux 
“Mary has the authority over the angels and the blessed in Heaven.  As a reward for her great humility, God have her the power and mission of assigning to saints the thrones made vacant by the apostate angels who fell away through pride.  Such is the will of the almighty God who exalts the humble, that the powers of Heaven, earth, and hell, willingly or unwillingly, must obey the commands of the humble Virgin Mary.  For God has made her queen of Heaven and earth, leader of his armies, keeper of his treasure, dispenser of his graces, mediatrix on behalf of men, destroyer of his enemies, and faithful associate in his great works and triumphs.” 
St. Louis Marie de Montfort  
“Let us run to Mary, and, as her little children, cast ourselves into her arms with a perfect confidence.” 
St. Francis de Sales 

 

“Mary, give me your Heart: so beautiful, so pure, so immaculate; your Heart so full of love and humility that I may be able to receive Jesus in the Bread of Life and love Him as you love Him and serve Him in the distressing guise of the poor.” 
St. Teresa of Calcutta (Mother Teresa)  

 

“Mary is more blessed because she embraces faith in Christ than because she conceives the flesh of Christ.”
St. Augustine  

 

“Listen, and let it penetrate your heart, my dear little son; do not be troubled or weighted down with grief. Do not fear any illness or vexation, anxiety or pain. Am I not here who am your Mother? Are you not under my shadow and protection? Am I not your fountain of life? Are you not in the folds of my mantle? In the crossing of my arms? Is there anything else you need?”
Our Lady of Guadalupe to St. Juan Diego 

 

“Are you suffering a great deal?  Don’t lose heart.  I will never forsake you.  My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God.” 
Our Lady of Fatima   

 

“Has anyone ever come away from her troubled or saddened or ignorant of the heavenly mysteries? Who has not returned to everyday life gladdened and joyful because his request had been granted by the Mother of God?”
St. Amadeus of Lausanne 

 

“Certainly she who performed the role of the Creator’s handmaid and Mother is truly and in perfect reality God’s Mother, and Lady and Queen over all creation.”
St. John Damascene

“Never be afraid of loving the Blessed Virgin too much.  You can never love her more than Jesus did.” 
St. Maximilian Kolbe
