Two Popes On The Blessed Virgin.

Pope Blessed Pius IX.

Pope Blessed Pius IX.

‘From the beginning and before all ages God selected and prepared for His only Son the Mother from whom, having taken flesh, He would be born in the blessed fullness of time; He loved her by herself more than all creatures, and with such a love as to find His delight in a singular way in her. That is why, drawing from the treasures of His divinity, He endowed her, more than all the angels and saints, with such an abundance of heavenly gifts that she was always completely free from sin, and that, all beautiful and perfect, she appeared in such a plenitude of innocence and holiness that, except God’s, no greater than hers can be conceived, and that no mind but the mind of God can measure it.’

Pope Pius IX, Bull Ineffabilis Deus, December 1854.

Pope Francis, and you're welcome...

Pope Francis, and you’re welcome…

“The Gospel does not tell us anything: if she spoke a word or not… She was silent, but in her heart, how many things told the Lord! ‘You, that day, this and the other that we read, you had told me that he would be great, you had told me that you would have given him the throne of David, his forefather, that he would have reigned forever and now I see him there!’ Our Lady was human! And perhaps she even had the desire to say: ‘Lies! I was deceived!’”

    Nice pictures; they suit the quotes well!

  2. This is the second time I have read this quote about Our Blessed Lady from our current Pope and it still shocks me. This can’t really be explained away, can it? I pray for His Holiness and for us.

    • The way I see it, you can explain disquieting expressions once, or perhaps twice.

      But the third time, and more so the thirtieth, you begin to think the real problem is the Pope’s disquieting mind.
