Blessed are you … because you believed in the Word of the Lord, because you hoped in his promises ...

Blessed are you …
because you believed in the Word of the Lord
because you hoped in his promises
because you were perfect in love.

Blessed are you for your prompt charity with Elizabeth,
for your motherly goodness in Bethlehem,
for your strength in persecution,
for your perseverance in searching for Jesus in the temple,
for your simple life in Nazareth,
for your intercession in Cana,
for your maternal presence at the foot of the cross,
for your fidelity in awaiting the Resurrection,
for your assiduous prayer at Pentecost.

Blessed are you for your glorious Assumption to the heavens,
for your maternal protection of the Church,
for your constant intercession for all of humanity.

~From John Paul II, during his trip to Colombia of July 1986
