St. Louis De Montfort's Prayer to Mary
Hail Mary, beloved Daughter of the Eternal Father.
Destroy in me all that may displease God; root it up and
Finally, dearly beloved Mother, grant if it be
I do not ask thee for visions, revelations,
It is thy privilege to dispose of all the gifts of God,

God Clocked in Hours of Overtime Creating Moms: |
by Erma Bombeck
When the Good Lord was creating Mothers,
And the Lord said, "Have you read the specs on this order?
And six pairs of hands."
The angel shook her head slowly and said,
"It's not the hands that are causing me problems,"
"That's on the standard model?" asked the angel.
The Lord nodded, "One pair that sees through closed doors
"Lord," said the angel, touching His sleeve gently,
"I can't," said the Lord.
The angel circled the model of a Mother very slowly,
"But tough!" said the Lord,
"Can it think?" asked the angel.
"Not only think, but also it can reason and compromise."
Finally, the angel bent over and ran her finger across
pain, loneliness and pride."

All that I have and am

True Devotion to Our Blessed Lady
If we would go up to God, and be united with Him,
This means is a true devotion to our Blessed Lady.
The second consists in entertaining for Lady more perfect
(the fifteen mysteries), to honor Mary's images and altars,
The third devotion to our Lady, known and practiced by very few
Mary, Mother of God, Pray for us!
Canticle of Mary: (Luke 1:46-35)|
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord.
From this day all generations will call me blessed:
He has mercy on those who fear him
He has shown the strength of his arm,
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
He has filled the hungry with good things,
He has come to the help of his servant Israel
Glory to the Father, and to the Son,
A Prayer to Mary|
Holy Mary, Mother of our God,
Blessed Mary, glorious in your holiness,
