Mater Amabilis

"God is the Author...of all beauty. He has made the world so beautiful with its starry sky, its enchanting landscapes, lovely mountains and valleys, rivers and lakes, its flowers and birds. Surely He must have made her beautiful who was to be the Queen of all creation....Physical beauty is surpassed by the beauty of the soul....This divine beauty shines through man's mortal frame and explains why saints are so attractive, even though they may be of homely features. Yet among all angels and saints there is none that can compare in grace and holiness with the Blessed Mother of God." --Rev. A. Biskupek, S.V.D., Our Lady's Litany (1954)
