Beside her Son, from birth to death.

Whoever will not love his enemies cannot know the Lord and the sweetness of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit teaches us to love our enemies in such way that we pity their souls as if they were our own children.
St. Silouan the Athonite, Writings, I.11 (via gospelofthekingdom)


I grieve for Thee, O Mary most sorrowful, in the affliction of Thy tender heart at the prophecy of the holy and aged Simeon. Dear Mother, by Thy heart so afflicted, obtain for me the virtue of humility and the Gift of the holy Fear of God.

- Traditional prayer to Our Lady of Sorrows

The Rosary is the best therapy for these distraught, unhappy, fearful, and frustrated souls, precisely because it involves the simultaneous use of three powers: the physical, the vocal, and the spiritual, and in that order.
Archbishop Fulton Sheen (Praying the Rosary)

If by chance your conscience is burdened with sin, take your Rosary and say at least a part of it in honour of some of the mysteries of the life, passion, and glory of Jesus Christ, and you can be sure that, while you are meditating on these mysteries and honouring them, he will show his sacred wounds to his Father in heaven. He will plead for you and obtain for you contrition and the forgiveness of your sins. One day our Lord said to Blessed Alan, “If only these poor wretched sinners would say my Rosary often, they would share in the merits of my passion, and I would be their Advocate and would appease the justice of God.”

-St. Louis de Montfort

~ The Power of the Holy Rosary ~

For never will anyone who says his Rosary every day become a formal heretic or be led astray by the devil. This is a statement that I would gladly sign with my blood."  ~ St. Louis de Montfort

Jesus, Mary and Joseph! I give you my heart and my soul.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Be with me in the last agonies of death.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph! May my soul depart in peace with you.
