CONFIDENCE IN MARY (ST BONAVENTURE)

Ah! let us never fail to have recourse in all our needs to the divine Mother,

who is always ready to aid anyone

who invokes her,

and who is more anxious

to lavish her favours upon us

than we are to receive them.

Whenever we come to her, 

we always find her hands

full of grace and mercy.

So great is Mary’s desire to benefit us

and to see us saved,

that she declares herself offended,

not merely by those who actually insult her,

but also by those who ask nothing from her.

Let us fly always to this divine Mother,

saying to her unceasingly:

O my Queen!

O Mary, Mother of my God!

no, I will never be confounded,

for I have placed all my hope in you.

(L S 1905)
