Secret Way of the Enclosed Garden – CLI

There are other means of obtaining grace: alms, sacrifices, all good works.  Clearly of themselves these acts have a real and special efficacy, productive of grace.  But how much their productive power increases, if we pass them through the hands of Mary, who purifies them, adorns them, multiplies them and makes them acceptable to Jesus.

And so it is with all the acts of our lives which, if they are subjected to the necessary conditions, are always productive of grace, merit and glory.  But as we have said, if the hand of Our Heavenly Mother purifies them, vivifies them, sanctifies them, what a sum of spiritual good may they not bring forth in the interests of God and of souls, in favor of the living and of the dead and of ourselves?
