Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Mother

Picture credit: Madonna by Wislawa Kwiatkowska

Look to the Star- Call upon Mary!
In danger, in difficulty or in doubt, think of Mary, call upon Mary,
Keep her name on your lips,
Never let it pass out of your heart.
Following in her footsteps, you will not go astray:
Praying to her, you will not fall into despair:
Thinking of her you will not err.
While she keeps hold of your hand, you will not fall ...
You will not grow weary ... you will have no fear ...
Enjoying her protection, you will reach the goal.
--Saint Bernard

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to Thee.
