Commenting on the passage where “a woman in the crowd raised her voice and said to Him, ‘Blessed is the womb that bore You and the breasts that You sucked!” (Lk 11:27), the holy doctor (St. Anthony) says

“Blessed, therefore, is the womb of the glorious Virgin who for nine months was worthy to carry all goodness, the highest goodness, the bliss of angels and reconciliation of sinners.”

Elsewhere he writes that  “She possessed within Her the compactness of love—for nine months She carried Love Incarnate in Her womb.”

From The Marian Devotion of St. Anthony of Padua
