Paul VI: "Beloved sons & daughters, would you like a final remembrance? Then have filial devotion to Mary most holy, the Blessed Virgin, true Mother of Christ and spiritually our Mother. You will have great need of her - to understand Christ, to serve Him, to imitate Him; you will need consolation and confidence - entrust yourselves to Our Lady. It is to her, as I depart, that I confide the Church of Africa, and especially this Church of yours here. Invoking upon all of you her sweet, powerful, motherly protection, I salute you and once more I bless you. Goodbye! And, by God’s mercy, may we meet again one day in Heaven!" (2 Aug 1969)

"Mother Mary means to me everything ... Jesus loves me because of Mary. He forgets my sins because of my Blessed Mother… I have never given her anything but I give her my heart to take it to Jesus; she takes my heart to Jesus. I know she loves me: she loves everyone."
(The crying in the background on the recording was a baby being baptised :-)
"Mary is very important in my life. Without her we wouldn't have Jesus in our lives and without Jesus we wouldn't have eternity … With Mary, everything is always blessed."
"Our Blessed Mother is the rose that I’ll never be able to describe. She’s my sweet mother, I love my blessed mother, I love her so much. And I thank the Lord for the love He has given me to be able to love His mother and to continue to love, because without the grace of God I cannot love our Blessed Mother and I cannot love God too. So I just love the Lord for everything He has done and given me through our Blessed Mother. She's the advocate; she sits at the foot of the Cross and cries all the time for us, she loves us so much."
"I think of Mary as my mother, and I always find spending a day without thinking about her or invoking her protection or her prayers, it sort of doesn't make the day without Mary for me. So I always think of her as a mother and, whether in times of joy or times of trials, I kind of find her as a link for me to Jesus, and so Mary is really important for me."
Noah, a seminarian with the Mill Hill Missionaries, talks about the priesthood in Man for Others:
"The priesthood is really a special gift and as a priest is a servant, now as a servant he is supposed to follow Christ and Christ is the first servant. And as a servant he is supposed to sacrifice his life for the sake of the Gospel; sacrifice his time and energy for the expansion of the Church."
Father Walter Munna Mashamba, a diocesan priest, ends his testimony with these words:
"Let us accept Jesus, let us be in union with Christ, let us love the Eucharist, let us love our Mother Mary, and our ministry will not be a burden. Our ministry - we shall love it. Jesus will use us in our ministry, we shall do wonders in our ministry and we shall never grow tired of serving Christ. I thank the Lord for the gift of priesthood and I've never regretted becoming a priest. I should have been a soldier, but today I am a soldier for Christ. I should have held a gun but today I'm holding Christ. Today I'm able, through His power, to invite Christ to transform wine into His blood, the host made out of wheat into His body - the greatest miracle."

Totus tuus ego sum et omnia mea tua sunt.
Accipio te in mea omnia. Praebe mihi cor tuum, Maria. - St Louis Marie de Montfort
Blessed John Paul II took his motto Totus Tuus from this quote.
"I am totally yours and all that I have is yours.
I accept you for my all. O Mary, give me your heart.”
