March 11 – Madonna Miracolosa (Italy, 1855) – Saint Sophronius of Jerusalem
Truly, you are blessed amongst women. For you have changed Eve's curse into a blessing; and Adam, who hitherto lay under a curse, has been blessed because of you.Truly, you are blessed amongst women. Through you the Father's blessing has shone forth on mankind, setting them free of their ancient curse.Truly, you are blessed amongst women, because through you your forbears have found salvation. For you were to give birth to the Savior who was to win them salvation.Truly, you are blessed amongst women, for without seed you have borne, as your fruit, him who bestows blessings on the whole world and redeems it from that curse that made it sprout thorns.(…) You, O Virgin, are like a clear and shining sky, in which God has set up his tent. From you he comes forth like a bridegroom leaving his chamber. Like a giant running his course, he will run the course of his life which will bring salvation for all who will ever live, and extending from the highest heavens to the end of them, it will fill all things with divine warmth and with life-giving brightness.
