MARY: THE MOST PERFECT CREATURE "She who is full of grace, the object of God's pleasure, exalted above all the angels and the saints, lived an ordinary life. "Mary is as much a creature as we are, with a heart like ours, made for joy and mirth as well as suffering and tears. Before Gab­riel communicates to her God's plan, our Lady does not know that she has been chosen from all eternity to be the mother of the Messiah. She sees herself as a lowly creature. That is why she can acknow­ledge, with full humility, that ‘he who is mighty has done great things' for her." Let us offer to our Mother today: Many glances of affection and many words of love, when we see her image or picture in our home, in the church, or anywhere.
