Secret Way of the Enclosed Garden – XII

Part I

 The Part Played by Mary in the Sanctification of Souls

Chapter I

The Necessity of Sanctifying Ourselves through Mary

 

I. We must sanctify ourselves; it is the will of God.

Soul, living image of God, redeemed by the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ, the Will of God regarding you is that you become holy like Him in this life and glorious like Him in the next.’

In these few dear words, de Montfort has summed up the whole program of human life, the reason of life’s existence.  And in this he is only the authorized echo of the great Apostle who stood in this relation to his Master.  ‘For this is the will of God, your sanctification.’
