Saint Bernard of Clairvaux

St Bernard.jpgI consider that the blessing of a fuller sanctification descended upon her [Mary, the Mother of God], so as not only to sanctify her birth, but also to keep her life pure from all sin; which gift is believed to have been bestowed upon none other born of woman. This singular privilege of sanctity, to lead her life without any sin, entirely benefited the queen of virgins, who should bear the Destroyer of sin and death, who should obtain the gift of life and righteousness for all. 

Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, 1090-1153, Cistercian, Abbot and Doctor of the Church
