Recently two Potters have been in the spotlight. Harry Potter with a new book and movie and Beatrix Potter with the movie Miss Potter (which by the way, I thought was a really charming movie). But for us the Potter of distinction is Venerable Mary Potter who founded the Sisters of the Little Company of Mary on July 2, 1877. Here is quote which she directs to Mary:

“…Jesus, Body and Soul, rested in peaceful repose within your pure womb, and was wholly yours. Rapturous joy thrilled through your soul as your Immaculate Heart gave the Eternal Word His mortal life, His Precious Blood, and “the Word was made Flesh, and dwelt within you.” Great was your joy, O Mary, for you didst joy in the joy of your God, of your Son, and greater far than this joy was the joy of Jesus within you, as to your heart He spoke a voiceless word, and that word was Mother.”

from the book The Path of Mary
