We know how much we stand in need of grace. Do we ask for it through Mary? For example the grace to attend Mass well, to speak kindly to a certain person, to do a task conscientiously, to accept a mortification are all graces that can help us so much. We should look upon Our Lady as the Treasure-house of all these graces. Just thinking of her own state of grace should make us realize how she could enlighten our minds. Thus if we were practical on this point we would be bringing the practice of the True Devotion into our daily life. Montfort once again emphasizes the consequences of such an attitude by reaffirming his comparison: ‘Jesus is everywhere and always the Fruit and the Son of Mary.’ The whole desire for every grace and virtue is to bring Jesus closer to us. Thus the point of Montfort’s argument is that by turning to Mary we will invariably find Jesus.
