Saturday of Our Lady

Our Lady Queen of Peace Church, Grafton, Ohio
At the dawn of creation the eyes of God rested with satisfaction on the universe he had created. At a second moment he looked with pleasure on the soul of Mary as he was about to recreate a fallen world. So fresh, unsullied, so unsurpassingly beautiful she was. He smiled on the loveliest creature that his creative love had fashioned; he saw that she was good.

Her soul was a meeting-place. Here was goodness, for she was full of grace; here was beauty, for she was all-beautiful; here was truth, for here was the Word in her womb, the source of all truth. No wonder he found delight in her.

Peace be with you!
