Weekly Knox: Together with Mary

In discussing how one could get discouraged on retreat, Knox encourages his readers to stay "together with Mary"  and to "try and put yourself in the position of those first apostles, who now and again, perhaps, in the course of their ungrateful novena (between Ascension and Pentecost), would steal a look at her motionless figure and wonder what thoughts were passing through her mind.  Keep her close in view; the spring of her perpetual virginity will rejuvenate us." - A Retreat for Lay People

When in doubt, "Behold your mother." Even when not in doubt! Nice follow up to your review of that edition of True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin, BTW.
