Saintly Thought for Today

                      "Mary Queen of Heaven" by Master of the Saint Lucy Legend

From St. Louis de Montfort's "Treatise on True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin:"

Moreover, we should repeat after the Holy Spirit, "All the glory of the king's daughter is within", meaning that all the external glory which heaven and earth vie with each other to give (the Blessed Virgin) is nothing compared to what she has received interiorly from her Creator, namely, a glory unknown to insignificant creatures like us, who cannot penetrate into the secrets of the king.
