Your duty is to sanctify yourself. Yes, even you. Who thinks that this task is only for priests and religious? To everyone, without exception, our Lord said: Be ye perfect, as my heavenly Father is perfect. St. Josemaria

Holy Name of Mary

Today, this the Feast of the Holy Name of Mary.....

I thought you might find these beautiful meditation such sweetness to your heart!

St. Alphonsus di Liguori “After the most sacred name of Jesus, the name of Mary is so rich in every good thing, that on earth and in heaven there is no other from which devout souls receive so much grace, hope, and sweetness.The wonder of this great name is, that if heard by the lovers of Mary a thousand times, it is always heard again with renewed pleasure, for they always experience the same sweetness each time it is pronounced.”The Glories of Mary , (Tan Books: 1978), 240.

St. Louis de Montfort said that the unfailing sign of true devotion to Mary is a love for the Hail Mary. Mary’s true clients regard the Hail Mary as something very dear, and most expressive of their love for Our Lady. Is it not something beautiful to consider that with each Hail Mary one gives a kiss to our heavenly Mother?”
