"O sinner, be not discouraged, but have recourse to Mary
in all your necessities. Call her to your assistance, for such
is the divine Will that she should help in every kind of
necessity." (Saint Basil the Great) How blessed are we to
have been given to Mary by Jesus at the time of his
crucifixion! This was not a nice gesture, but a deliberate
decision with a deliberate purpose. Jesus, knowing that
after his death the attacks of the evil one would be
unrelenting, entrusted us to his Mother, who was sinless
by God's grace. She is called the Refuge of sinners. In our
struggles we do not have to feel alone, but can and should
turn to our Mother for protection and strength as she
intercedes for us before her Son. Thank you, Jesus, for
your Mother, now our Mother.
