these two kinds of devotion are often confused and they can be confused if we don't distinguish between the intention and the effect. the intention to love mary is in itself the beginning of love. it is the intention of love. the intention is the desire to love. but when the desire is fulfilled the intention is no longer the intention. it is the effect of love. the difference between the two kinds is that in the first kind we love mary for her own sake. this kind of love is idolatry. it is not really love. it is an idolatry which gives us something in return for love. it is the idolatry of those whose love for something is greater than their love for god. in the other kind of devotion we love mary for her sake, not for her own sake. she becomes the object of our love. she is the subject of our love. she loves us in return for her love of us. she gives herself in order to give us ourselves. the difference between the two kinds of devotion is that in the first kind the object of our love is greater than the subject of love. the object of our love is greater than ourselves. in the second kind the subject of love is greater than the object of love. the subject is greater than the object. that is the difference.

the second part of the treatise is the catechesis on the holy spirit. he is the author of all grace and the holy spirit. he is the architect, the engineer of all the sacraments. he is the author of all conversion. without him we cannot be converted. without the holy spirit we cannot be sanctified. but in the person of the holy spirit he is present within us. he is in us and with us. we do not need to go to the holy spirit. the spirit is present with us. the spirit in mary is the spirit in us. the holy spirit is the holy spirit in mary. he is her spiritus, her spiritual person. the holy spirit is the holy spirit in us.
