When grace, when charity, fully penetrates the heart, it purifies it radically and completely… In Mary’s case… Everything in her is “absorbed” by charity which blossoms into evangelical littleness, enabling her to give herself totally, to forget herself completely, to consider only the Father’s gift: his Son. Her disinterested, generous, and tender love opens the living forces of her heart. There was no human heart more blossomed than that of Mary at the Annunciation… In this [selfless] love, Mary comes out of herself completely and forgets herself in order to move towards the one who gives himself and to belong only to him. Mary’s pure love surrenders her to the gift of God. It enables her heart to beat in unison with the heart of Jesus, the Son of the Father and her own son, in perfect unity…
