Margaret Anna Fridays - Devote our Advent to Mary

It's a tradition on the blog to feature words of wisdom and inspiration from the founder of my religious community, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace.  Known in religion as Mother Francis Clare, Margaret Anna Cusack was a prolific writer in her day.  Here are some of her spiritual insights on Advent:

Let us go to Mary.  Let us devote our Advent to Mary.  Let us consecrate every thought, word, and action to Mary during this holy season; and then, on the blessed Christmas morning, she will place her Infant in our arms; nay, rather, she will lay Him down to rest in our hearts ... Advent should be a tie of special devotion to Mary. ~ M.F. Cuscak, Mediations for Advent and Easter, 1866
