“My hope is in Christ,
who strengthens the weakest
by His Divine help.
I can do all in Him
who strengthens me.
His Power is infinite
and if I lean on Him,
it will be mine.
His Wisdom is infinite
and if I look to Him for counsel,
I shall not be deceived.
His Goodness is infinite
and if my trust is stayed in Him,
I shall not be abandoned.”

not for that shall we be dismayed.

who with virginal foot did crush the head of the serpent.”
“Truly, we are passing through disastrous times,
when we may well make our own, the lamentation
of the Prophet: “There is no truth and there is no mercy
and there is no knowledge of God in the land” (Hosea 4:1).

the Virgin Most Merciful rises before our eyes,
like a rainbow, as the arbiter of peace
between God and man.”
“God could have given us,
the Redeemer of the human race
and the Founder of the Faith,
in another way than through the Virgin
but since Divine Providence has been pleased,
that we should have the Man-God through Mary,
who conceived Him by the Holy Spirit
and bore Him in her womb,
it only remains for us to receive Christ,
from the hands of Mary.”
