J.M.J. "Prayer is helplessness casting itself on Power, infirmity leaning on Strength, misery reaching to Mercy, and a prisoner clamoring for Relief."
Venerable Fulton John Sheen (1895-1979)
“It is sweet music to the ear to say, 'I honor you, O Mother!' It is a sweet song to repeat, 'I honor you, O holy Mother!' You are my delight, dear hope, and chaste love, my strength in all adversities ... If you see your child overwhelmed by misfortune, O gracious Virgin Mary, let me find rest in your motherly embrace. ”
Pope Leo XIII (1878-1903)
"O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee."
