St. Alphonsus (1760): “The Mother of God herself said to St. Matilda, that no one could better salute her than with the ‘Hail Mary.’ He who salutes Mary will also be saluted by her. St. Bernard heard himself once audibly saluted from a statue of the Virgin, which said to him, Hail Bernard.”
St. Augustine, 391: “When we shall have come into His (God’s sight), we shall behold the equity of God’s justice. Then no one will say:… ‘Why was this man led by God’s direction to be baptized, while that man, though he lived properly as a catechumen, was killed in a sudden disaster, and was not baptized?’ Look for rewards, and you will find nothing except punishments.”
