(Our Lady of Perpetual Help, pray for us.)
"Jesus Christ in the womb of Mary prepared her by a profusion of grace to be the Mother of His Mystical Body as she was the Mother of His natural Body. He wished that we should receive from her the life of the Spirit as He had received from her the life of the body; that we should depend upon her for the maintenance and growth of our spiritual lifer as He depended on her for the maintenance and growth of His physical life. "
Blessed William Joseph Chaminade
The favorite Gospel passage of Blessed Chaminade was Mary's message to the servants at the marriage feast of Cana, "Do whatever he tells you." (Jn 2:5)
Blessed William Joseph Chaminade firmly believed that we are all missionaries of Mary. He directed his followers to do everything under Mary's guidance.
