Blessed Fast of St. Mary

“She was a virgin, not only in body but in her mind as well. Lowly of heart, serious in her speech, prudent in spirit, sparing in words, devoted to reading, she did not place her hope in changeable riches but in the prayer of the poor. Industrious in her work, modest in her speech, she let God, not man, judge her thoughts. She offended no one; she had goodwill toward all; she respected her elders; she did not envy her peers. She fled ostentation, followed reason, and loved virtue…such was Mary, whose life alone is sufficient to instruct everyone. So, if we find the Author pleasing, let us approve the Author’s work, so that whoever desires her same prize may imitate her example. How many different virtues shine out in a single Virgin!” – St. Ambrose
