“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 obtain the assistance of her prayer, neglect not to walk in her footsteps. With her for guide, you shall never go astray; invoking her, you shall never lose heart.” — St. Bernard of Clairvaux

imageAnd the Lord came and stood forth, calling as at other times, “Samuel! Samuel!”  And Samuel said, “Speak, for thy servant hears.”
And Samuel grew, and the Lord was with him and let none of his words fall to the ground.  (1 Samuel 3:10, 19)
