St. Louis De Montfort (1710): “The Hail Mary is a blessed dew that falls from heaven upon the souls of the predestinate. It gives them a marvelous spiritual fertility so that they can grow in all virtues. The more the garden of the soul is watered by this prayer the more enlightened one’s intellect becomes, the more zealous his heart, and the stronger his armor against his spiritual enemies.” (The Secret of the Rosary, p. 46)
Second Council of Nicea, 787: “To those who dare to say that the Catholic Church ever accepted idols anathema!” (Seventh Session, Definition of Faith)
