Recourse To Mary

In these turbulent times – when the world’s economy, outbreaks of violence, natural disasters and the daily challenges in all of our lives threaten to overwhelm our peace of mind and leave us floundering, immobile or heading towards despair – let us take to heart the words of St. Bernard of Clairvaux:

In danger, anguish, or doubt,
think of Mary and call upon her.
Let the name of Mary
never be far from your lips or heart.
And to obtain the fruit of her prayers,
do not forget the example of her life.
Following Mary,
you will never lose your way.
Praying to her,
you will never sink into despair.
Contemplating Mary,
you will never go wrong.
With Mary’s support,
you will never fall.
Beneath her protection,
you will never fear.
Under her guidance,
you will never tire.
And with her help,
you will reach your heavenly goal.

I will be offline until the first week of September [comments will be closed until then]. Be safe. Be strong. Stay under Her mantle, dear ones.

[St. Bernard’s words were excerpted from: Favorite Prayers to Our Lady, Anthony M. Buono]
