Quote/s of the Day – 4 September – The Feast of Our Lady of Consolation
“Has anyone ever come away from Mary,
troubled or saddened or ignorant
of the heavenly Mysteries?
Who has not returned to everyday life
gladdened and joyful
because a request has been granted
by the Mother of God?”
St Amadeus of Lausanne (1110-1159)
“As the Mother of Christ,
Mary is the Mother
of our wisdom and justice,
of our holiness and redemption.
She is more our Mother
than the mother of our flesh.”
St Aelred (1109-1166)
“O Mary, I have not doubt
that whenever we run to you,
we shall obtain all that we desire.
Let those then who have no hope, hope in you.”
