Mary helps Dante

Acts to get him a good guide

Virgil knows the way

NOTE: The mother of Jesus wants to help Dante, who has strayed from the path of virtue. She asks Saint Lucia to help him. Knowing Dante loved the deceased Beatrice, Saint Lucia ask her to go to Virgil and ask him to help Dante. She does, and he agrees.
