“[Paul] used to say that this feast [the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary] was the blessed anniversary of that day on which he took leave of the world and wore the habit of the Passion for the first time. It was the day on which, in the flower of his youth, he offered himself to the Divine Majesty. Thus, he imitated the heavenly Queen who presented herself in the temple as a sacrifice most pleasing to the heart of God.”
(St. Vincent Mary Strambi, “Life of Ven. Paul of the Cross”)
