For God and for His glory

As soon as she [Mary] had the use of reason, that is, from the first moment
of her immaculate conception in the womb of St. Anne, from that time
she began with all her powers to love her God; and thus she continued to do,
ever advancing more in perfection and love through her whole life.
All her thoughts, her desires, her affections, were wholly given to God;
not a word, not a motion, not a glance of the eye, not a breath of hers that was not
for God and for His glory, never departing one step,
nor separating herself for one moment

from the divine love.

St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori
