St. Ambrose (390): “True repentance is to cease to sin.”
Pope Pius XI (1931): “She is the Mother of God; therefore whatever privilege (in the order of sanctifying grace) has been granted to anyone of the saints, she obtains it more than all. Why, therefore, do the Reformers and not a few non-Catholics bitterly condemn our piety towards the Virgin Mother of God, as though we were withdrawing the worship due to God alone? Do they not know, or do they not attentively consider that nothing can be more pleasing to Jesus Christ… than that we should venerate her as she deserves…” (Lux Veritatis # 42)
