In anguish, danger or doubt,
Think of Mary and call upon her
Let the name of Mary
Never be far from you lips or heart.
And to obtain the fruit of her prayers,
Do not forget the example of her life.
You will never lose your way.
Praying to her
You will never go wrong.
With Mary's support
You will never fail.
Beneath her protection
You will never fear.
Under her guidance
You will never grow weary.
And with her help
You will reach your heavenly goal.
~ Doctor of the Church, St. Bernard of Clairveaux
Happy Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
