  1. It's quite something to contemplate how awesome is Our Blessed Lady's reward in Heaven: what can be achieved by conforming human will to the will of God. Also to reflect that the highest place in Heaven occupied by a created being, is the preserve not of an angel, but of a simple human, and a woman to boot - now that's true feminism.

    1. Thank You, Matthaeus, for your very apposite Comment.

      Happy Feast to you and all your Readers at
