The Virgin Mary made me understand something that, until now, I had not fully grasped: that, during the Passion, the Holy Spirit somehow became incarnate in Mary.
By Him, the Father and Mary were joined together intimately and became one. The Passion of Jesus was also the Passion of the Father, and the Passion of the Father was lived out in Mary.
The Father borrowed from her, so to speak, her human heart to suffer in her, with her, through her, the Passion of their Son, of their child, in a single fusion of love.
