Younger than Springtime

"French novelist Georges Bernanos describes the Virgin's gaze in these words: 'It is not the look of indulgence...but of tender compassion, pained surprise. It is the look that reveals the inconceivable purity which makes her younger than sin, younger than the race from which she has sprung. Though she is the mother for and of grace, she is also the youngest member of the human race.'"

- Cdl Bertone's The Last Secret of Fatima
