Venerable Concepcion’s Practical Desires for the Virgin Mary

If you were raised Catholic or even if you weren’t and wish you could understand a healthy devotion to the Blessed Mother, reading the spirituality of Venerable Concepcion Cabrera de Armida, a Mexican Mother and Mystic who lived close to our time, can really bless you. Consider the following words penned by Venerable Concepcion that were include in the book, Priestly People by Richardo Zimbron Levy, M.Sp.S., a member of the order of priests that Venerable Concepcion inspired:

“I want to do everything in union with Mary.That’s why I wonder how she would receive the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist; how she would pray, how she would offer her divine Son to the heavenly Father; with how much generosity she would sacrifice for Jesus; how she would live in the presence of God; how many times she would chat with Jesus; how organized she would be; how she would eat; how she would rest as she dreamed about her Jesus; how she would offer advice; how meek and how sweet her words must have been. And thus, I want to imitate her more and more. May the Lord deign to help me and may I not live, nor love, nor work by myself, but in union with this Virgin of my soul, this Virgin who is my Blessed Mother (99).”
