On the Glory of Mary

We cannot honor our Lady too much because whatever we do to venerate her, it will still be nothing as compared to the honor that the Lord Jesus bestowed upon her at her assumption. We may be able to clothe her images with vestments of gold but still it is nothing because Christ clothed his Mother with the sun. We may melt all our jewelries to create an enormous golden crown for her but still it is nothing because the Lord crowned her with stars. We may let her feet rest on pillows but Christ has given her the moon as her footstool. With what glory has Christ honored His Mother! Even the superlative of the honor we are able to show her will still be lacking as compared to the glory and honor with which the Lord clothed his Mother.
