He considers his visitor his friend, but she claims us as her children.
He feels too tired to help, but she never sleeps.
He hesitates to provide, but she is eager to give.
If mothers who are imperfect know how to give good gifts to their children, how much more will our perfect mother in Heaven intercede to give us good things whenever we ask her in the Rosary. It is a prayer which she receives from us as a sweet bouquet of roses.
