Today is the Optional Memoria of Our Lady on Saturday. Here is the Memorare, attributed to St Bernard: ‘Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, and sought thy intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother, unto thee I come, before thee I stand sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but, in thy mercy, hear and answer me’.

May Our Lady be close to you this day, guiding your every step, and may God bless you abundantly.
