A quote from St. Bernard of Clairvaux

Everyday I get an email of the Saint of the Day. Today featured is St. Bernard of Clairvaux and it ended with a great Quote that I'd like to share with you.
“In dangers, in doubts, in difficulties, think of Mary, call upon Mary. Let
not her name depart from your lips, never suffer it to leave your heart. And
that you may more surely obtain the assistance of her prayer, neglect not to
walk in her footsteps. With her for guide, you shall never go astray; while
invoking her, you shall never lose heart; so long as she is in your mind, you
are safe from deception; while she holds your hand, you cannot fall; under her
protection you have nothing to fear; if she walks before you, you shall not grow
weary; if she shows you favor, you shall reach the goal” (St. Bernard).
What a great inspiration for difficult times and also int he common day-to-day times. Our Mother is with us all the time... what a true blessing that Jesus gave his mother to all of us!
