St. Louis De Montfort (1710): “The Blessed Virgin, St. Bernard says… retains and keeps the saints in their plenitude, so that it may not diminish. She prevents their virtues from being dissipated, their merits from perishing, their graces from being lost, the devil from harming them...” (True Devotion to Mary #174)
St. John Chrysostom (392): “Weep for the unbelievers; weep for those who differ not a whit from them, those who go hence without illumination, without the seal! [Baptism]… They are outside the royal city… with the condemned. ‘Amen, I tell you, if anyone is not born of water and the Spirit, he shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.’”
