For the Octave of Assumption


As Christ is Lord, so Mary is Lady and sovereign. He who bends the knee before the Son, kneels before the Mother. At the sound of her name the devils tremble, men rejoice, the Angels glorify God. Mary and Christ are one flesh, one mind, and one love. From the day when it was said “the Lord be with thee,” the grace was irrevocable, the unity inseparable; and in speaking of the glory of the Son and Mother, we must call it not so much a common glory as the self-same glory.
