The causality of the saints

The higher a nature, the greater its causal power, and the higher a causal power, the more intimately and determinately it applies itself to a greater range of effects. And so the saints hear all prayers distinctly and fully, and more penetrate into the substance of the prayer than the one who prayed it. All prayers are heard with total attention, whatever their number. The highest such causality is Marian, which is capable of exhaustively loving each person with the total force of her immaculate heart, which is why St. Padre Pio described Mary’s care for him was the same as if he were the only child she had in the world.
