ST.BERNARD OF CLAIRVAUX PRAYER TO MARY, PROTECTRESS AND REFUGE


"Mary, my Mother, Protectress and Refuge--Your Immaculate Heart is our safe harbor in any storm. Manifest now the power God has given You in answer to this plea--Mary, Protectress of the Faith and Refuge of Holy Love. Amen."

The miraculous statue of Our Lady of Gibbilmanna in the diocese of Palermo, Sicily.

*On Easter Sunday 1534 a boat carrying the statue took refuge from a storm near the village of Castello di Roccella. Legend has it that Mary appeared to a Capuchin friar who lived in Gibilmanna, telling him to fetch the statue and build a shrine. The statue was loaded onto a wagon pulled by oxen. At a certain point the oxen refused to move any further. At this spot a shrine was erected for Mary.
