Let not her name depart from your lips, never suffer it to leave your heart.
And that you may more surely obtain the assistance of her prayer, neglect not to walk in her footsteps. With her for guide, you shall never go astray; while invoking her, you shall never lose heart; so long as she is in your mind, you are safe from deception; while she holds your hand, you cannot fall; under her protection you have nothing to fear; if she walks before you, you shall not grow weary; if she shows you favor, you shall reach the goal.”
- St Bernard
I came across this quote last week and was quite moved. I especially loved the thought of Mary holding our hand as we go through the trials and tribulations of this earthly life.
Prayers that our Blessed Mother shows all of us favor, so we can reach our goal of being with Her in Paradise.
