Meditations by Padre Pio

Jesus, who was reigning in Heaven with the most holy humanity which He had received from the womb of the Virgin, also wanted that His Mother be reunited to Him, not only with Her soul, but also with Her body, and that She share in the fullness of His glory.
And that was right and dutiful. That body which had never been slave of the devil, nor of sin, not even for a moment, could not become the slave of deterioration either.
