“Closest to God”

There comes a time when we can no longer content ourselves with our own patron saint, nor with the patron saint of our town, and not even with the greatest of patron saints; we must go back to the one who is most acceptable and closest to God, “to the one who is Mary because she is full of grace.”

–Charles Péguy, The Porch of the Mystery of the Second Virtue
