Strana 30 - I will put enmities between thee and the woman and thy seed and her seed : she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel.
Strana 27 - And for their cursing and lying they shall be talked of, when they are consumed : when they are consumed by thy wrath, and they shall be no more. And they shall know that God will rule Jacob, and all the ends of the earth. They shall return at evening and shall suffer hunger like dogs, and shall go round about the city.
Strana 30 - Inimicitias ponam inter te et mulierem, et semen tuum et semen illius; ipsa conteret caput tuum, et tu insidiaberis calcaneo eius.
Strana 21 - Mary has struck her roots in the soul, she produces there marvels of grace, which she alone can produce, because she alone is the fruitful Virgin, who never has had, and never will have, her equal in purity and fruitfulness.

Its ignorance of theology makes it unsubstantial and unworthy. It is not the prominent characteristic of our religion which it ought to be. It has no faith...
Strana ix - What is the remedy that is wanted ? what is the remedy indicated by God himself ? If we may rely on the disclosures of the saints, it is an immense increase of devotion to our Blessed Lady, but remember, nothing short of an immense one.
Strana 7 - I avow, with all the Church, that Mary, being but a mere creature that has come from the hands of the Most High is, in comparison with His Infinite Majesty, less than an atom ; or rather she is nothing at all, because He only is 'He Who is...
Strana 176 - ... those who are led by the Spirit of God, are the children of God, which guides into all temperance and meekness.
