Inner Life of Mary

The supernatural life which Mary led on earth, particularly her advancement in grace and wisdom, in her intimate union with Jesus, her Divine Son, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity. Saint Luke, in chapter 2, tells us Mary’s manner of meditation, how she pondered on the words concerning Jesus and the words spoken by Jesus: “But Mary kept all these words, pondering them in her heart,” and “his mother kept all these words in her heart.” The feast of the Inner Life of Mary is celebrated by the Sulpicians on 19 October.
