Quote of the Day

“To our own era, intent upon a rediscovery of an inner life that has been largely dissipated in materialistic systems of thought and of society, an age seeking for an affirmation of the reality of the spiritual dimension of man, Mary is above all the symbol of a rich, healthy and creative interiority. The confusion we tend to make in the West is between Mary’s motherhood and her interiority. We have emphasized the attractive, consoling mother out of proportion to the God-centered spirit of prayer, her ‘other-centeredness.’”
-John Main
The Joy of Being
[Darton, Longman & Todd, 1987]
