3rd May


The Lord has given all the means whereby we may, if we please, maintain ourselves in His grace; and they are means which cannot fail. What better safeguard can we have than the protection of Our Blessed Lady? Is not the dear name of Mary balm for all our wounds? I wonder how often you have experienced the comfort of this name, the aid of her who is the Mother of all who have recourse to Her; for at the mere thought of this Mother of God and our Mother calm returns to the soul and serenity to the mind. Gladness accompanies the mere mention of her name; by invoking it we renew our courage, even in moments of greatest discouragement and fierce conflict, and we put the enemies of the soul to flight. He who trusts in Mary cannot perish.

Rome, 15.08.29
