“CALL UPON MARY”
St. Bernard (1090-1153), Abbot of Clairvaux in Burgundy, France, Doctor of the Church, and great devotee of Mary, reminds us to have recourse always to Mary.
In danger, anguish, or doubt,
think of Mary and call upon her.
Let the name of Mary
never be far from your lips or heart.
And to obtain the fruit of her prayers,
do not forget the example of her life.
you will never lose your way.
Praying to her,
you will never sink into despair.
you will never go wrong.
With Mary’s support,
you will never fall.
Beneath her protection,
you will never fear.
Under her guidance,
you will never grow weary.
And with her help,
you will reach your heavenly goal.
