We cannot take rest as long as there is in the world one soul in danger, who does not yet know the Immaculate. Our human frailty, limited resources or any other worldly difficulty must not restrain us; let us confide in the Immaculate, let us place ourselves truly in Her hands and She will continue to win the battles of God, as at Lepanto, as at Vienna.
We must place our Lady in every soul so that from every soul sin be expelled and Jesus introduced. Who finds the Immaculate, finds Jesus. The Immaculate is the conqueress of the devil, is the Mother of God, always united to God, the full of grace, the masterpiece of grace with every holiness and perfection attainable by a human creature. Let us pray to the Immaculate, let us trust in the Immaculate, the conqueress, faithfully awaiting the day in which a knight of the Immaculate will raise high above the Kremlin in Moscow the white standard of the Immaculate.

May all nourish themselves on this truth so as to enter into the thought of God who willed the Incarnation to give us much more than what we had lost in Adam, and who in the Incarnation willed the Immaculate to remind us of the innocent man created by God and of the vision of an innocent world, according to the plan of God. To God all glory, to God our respectful love and our praise, who willed thus to exalt and glorify the Immaculate.
Mother of this dismembered and sinful humanity, our Hope, always. Returning to Venice in he was arrested by the Inquisition.
His case was eventually called to Rome, where when asked to abjure not his philosophical system, but the heresies it contained, he refused. He was then turned over to the secular arm and executed by burning in the square known as Campo di Fiori. To his death he remained a very influential figure in Italian intellectual circles.
