Picturing Mary, Absorbed in Contemplation of the Word Within

When I picture you, Mary, going, as in the Gospel, to a hill country of Judah, to perform an act of charity for your cousin Elizabeth—I see you as beautiful, serene, majestic, absorbed in contemplation of the Word of God within you.

Another Bethany in the World

How much, O my Master, would I like to stay with you in silence. But what I love more than anything is that your will should be done, and since for now you want me to live in the world, I submit to this  with all my heart for love of you. I give you the cell of my heart to be for you another Bethany. Come rest with me, I love you so.
