“Every aspect of priestly formation can be referred to Mary, the human being who has responded better than any other to God’s call. Mary became both the servant and the disciple of the Word to the point of conceiving, in her heart and in her flesh, the Word made man, so as to give him to mankind. Mary was called to educate the one Eternal Priest, who became docile and subject to her motherly authority. With her example and intercession the Blessed Virgin keeps vigilant watch over the growth of vocations and priestly life in the Church.”
Mary is the Mother of Vocations by her heavenly intercession at the throne of God. It is through her maternal prayers that Christ gives certain people the grace to give themselves entirely to his service. She obtains from him the grace for them to be called; but she also tells them, as she told the servants at Cana, to be sure to do whatever he tells you.
