St Bernard, the Cistercian who had a great devotion to the Mother of God, said this: ‘Let her be ever on thy lips, ever in thy heart; and the better to obtain the help of her prayers, imitate the example of her life. Following her, thou strayest not; invoking her, thou despairest not; thinking of her, thou wanderest not; upheld by her, thou fallest not; shielded by her, thou fearest not; guided by her, thou growest not weary; favoured by her, thou reachest the goal’.

With Our Lady as guide, we can never fall out of the hands of God, for she will always keep us within His embrace. May God bless you and guide you this day.
