The Blessed Mother
From “The Reed of God:”
”The description of His birth in the Gospel does not say that she held Him in her arms but that she ‘wrapped Him up in swaddling clothes and laid Him in a manger.’
”As if her first act was to lay Him on the Cross.
”She knew that this little son of hers was God’s Son and that God had not given Him to her for herself alone but for the whole world.
”This is one of the greatest of all the things that we must learn from our contemplation of Our Lady.”
