The Holy Fathers

“I urge you, dear brothers and sisters, to persevere in your devotion to Mary. The more we live and grow in our readiness to trust Her, the more Mary draws us closer to the ‘riches of Christ which are beyond understanding’.”

– Pope John Paul II, speaking at Fatima

The Saints

“Both Saint Bernard and Saint Bonaventure say that the Queen of Heaven is certainly no less grateful and conscientious than gracious and well-mannered people of this world. Just as she excels in all other perfections, she surpasses us all in the virtue of gratitude; so she would never let us honor her with love and respect without repaying us one hundred fold. Saint Bonaventure says that Mary will greet us with grace if we greet her with the Hail Mary.”

St Louis Marie de Montfort (author of ‘True Devotion To The Blessed Virgin Mary’)
