And The King Loved Her



It is of her that we must understand those words of the Book of Esther: And the King loved her more than all the women. And we must conclude that to love that Mother of fair love and to be loved by her, is happiness, fortune, hope, victory, and life.

My Mother

I put my trust forever,
O Mary, pure in thee.
Then show thyself a mother,
And daily succor me.
And when death's hand shall touch me,
Thy pity I implore;
Oh, lead me, dearest Mother,
To God―for evermore!

"The Virgin Mother"
According to Theology, 1889
