Our Lady in Pink
Glorious things are spoken of you, O Mary, who today were exalted above the choirs of angels into eternal triumph with Christ -- Entrance antiphon for Vigil Mass of the Assumption.
"God well deserves to be loved by women, for he did not shun to be born of a woman. Marvelous and precious was the privilege he thus gave to all women; it was not granted to a man to be or to be called father of God, but it was given to a woman to bear God." -- St. Hugh of Lincoln (d. 1200)
