One meets the Blessed Virgin inevitably when one attains a certain intensity of spiritual aspiration, when this aspiration is authentic and pure. The very fact of having attained a spiritual sphere which comprises a certain degree of intensity and purity of intention puts you in the presence of the Blessed Virgin. This meeting belongs to a certain “sphere” – i.e. to a certain degree of intensity and purity of spiritual aspiration – of spiritual experience, just as the experience of having a mother belongs naturally to human family life on earth. It is therefore as “natural” for the spiritual domain as the fact of having a mother is natural in the domain of one’s terrestrial family. The difference is that on earth one can certainly be motherless, whilst in the realm of the spiritual this can never happen.

Letter XI Force
In the realm of the spiritual we can never be motherless.
