SHELTER


Most Holy Virgin, accept me as thy servant and shelter me under thy mantle, thou who art the Mother of mercy.
- St Alphonsus Liguori 

VIRTUES 

All, according to their state, should strive to bring alive the wondrous virtues of our heavenly Queen and most loving Mother through constant effort of mind and manner.
- From the encyclical ‘Ad Caeli Reginam’ (1954) 

HOPE 

Without Mary, man had no hope except in atheism, and for atheism the world was not ready. Hemmed back on that side, men rushed like sheep to escape the butcher, and were driven to Mary; only too happy in finding protection and hope in a being who could understand the language they talked, and the excuses they had to offer.
- Henry Adams in ‘Mont-Saint-Michel and Chartres’
