His lavish of grace

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins,
in accordance with the riches of God's grace that he lavished on us
with all wisdom and understanding.  - Ephesians 1:7
    "Without her consent, we would not have Our Lord.  She gave Him flesh and blood; it is through her that we have Christ in His humanity.  It is said that Christ is present in His humanity  ... in heaven and in the Blessed Sacrament.

    And if Christ is there, in His humanity and His divinity, then Mary is, too, with us so close, so eager to dispense graces.  We ask her for the grace we each one stand most in need of, and Our Lord Who can deny her nothing will give her more that she asks.  And what could she ask more than that her Son be loved, that we may honor Him with increased honor?"
