“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Luke 1:42




“Of all women

you are the most blessed,

and blessed is the fruit of your womb.”


– Luke 1:42 (JB)






What a loving Mother

Jesus gave us!


How could we fail to love

her whom our Lord loved so much?

It is impossible to love Christ adequately

without also loving the Mother who gave Him to us.


If we choose to ignore her

we may end up ignoring Him

– for the two are inseparable

in the great drama of redemption.


[inspired by a reflection on The Glorious Assumption, by Archbishop Fulton Sheen]






“Taken up into heaven,

Mary shows us the way to God,

the way to heaven,

the way to life.

She shows it to her children baptised in Christ

and to all people of good will.

She opens this way

especially to the little ones and to the poor,

those who are dear to divine mercy.


The Queen of the world

reveals to individuals and to nations

the power of the love of God

whose plan upsets that of the proud,

pulls down the mighty from their thrones

and exalts the humble,

fills the hungry with good things

and sends the rich empty away”


– St. Pope John Paul II






Hail Mary, full of grace,

the Lord is with you,

blessed are you among women

and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.


Holy Mary, Mother of God,

pray for me – a sinner –


and at the hour of my death.
