Confidence in Mary

"Whoever entrusts himself to her will possess her, and his descendants will also inherit her.....Then she will bring him happiness, and reveal her secrets to him.   --Sirach 4:16-18

Reflection:  See the confidence that the Church places in Mary.  In all public calamities, she invariably calls upon the faithful to enlist her protection through novenas, through prayers and processions, and through visits to her churches and shrines.  --St. Alphonsus Liguori

Prayer:  O Mary, the whole Church puts her trust in you.  Teach me to trust you completely in all the troubles and adversities of life--whether of body or soul.  Amen
