Secret Way of the Enclosed Garden – LXI

The ways of the spiritual life are many.  They all deserve our reverence since they are allowed and approved by the Church, and have justified themselves by raising countless souls to the highest sanctity.

Our holy writer is not out to destroy them nor to supplant them.  He would on the contrary make use of them all.  With this purpose he teaches and brings forward a doctrine, old as the mind of God and simple even as that mind, embracing all the others, facilitating them and giving them an incomparable vitality and an infallible meritorious value.  We must imitate God Himself in His conduct towards Mary.
