"Your birth, O Blessed Virgin Mary, fills the whole world with a sweet consolation and a holy joy, because of you was born our Jesus, our God, who has taken away from us the curse in which we were plunged by the sin of our first parents, and filled us with all kinds of blessings." ~ Saint John Vianney
'O Mary, you where chosen by the Father to begin and accomplish His greatest work, for you alone were found worthy of God's grace,the grace to become the God- bearer. Holy is your name, 'O Mother, and all generations shall call you blessed.
The Son of God became man for our salvation in you and through you, 'O Queen of Heaven, and we shall forever sing your praises.
'O Guiding Light, you continue your part in our salvation journey by constantly leading us to your Son. May our ears and our hearts be open to listen to your motherly call all the days of our lives.
"Dear children! Today I call you especially now to advance against Satan by means of prayer. Satan wants to work still more now that you know he is at work. Dear children, put on the armor for battle and with the Rosary in your hand defeat him! Thank you for having responded to my call." August 8, 1985 BVM, Medjugorje
