Lent Day 36 – Mary

by gary-foote on March 25, 2015

Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord.
May it be done to me according to your word.”
– Luke 1:38


“In dangers, in doubts, in difficulties,
think of Mary, call upon Mary.
Let not her name depart from your lips,
never suffer it to leave your heart.

And that you may 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.”

–Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, Father and Doctor of the Church
