"...They found the Child with Mary his Mother and falling down, they adored him. And opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold, frankincense, and myrrh. ...They went back another way..." - Matthew 2
Hail Mary, Mother of God, Virgin Mother, Morning Star, Vessel of Honor.
Queen conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee!
St. Ambrose, Bishop and Doctor
"Omnia Christus est nobis! If you have a wound to heal, He is the doctor; if you are parched by fever, He is the spring; if you are oppressed by injustice, He is justice; if you are in need of help, He is strength; if you fear death, He is life; if you desire Heaven, He is the way; if you are in the darkness, He is light.... Taste and see how good is the Lord: blessed is the man who hopes in Him!"
“If you are wise, then, know that you have been created for the glory of God and your own eternal salvation. This is your goal; this is the center of your life; this is the treasure of your heart. If you reach this goal, you will find happiness. If you fail to reach it, you will find misery.”
St. Robert Bellarmine
O God, who adorned the
Bishop Saint Robert Bellarmine with wonderful learning and virtue to vindicate the faith of your Church, grant, through his intercession, that in the integrity of that same faith your people may always find joy. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
