Mary: guide, not goal...

 Feast of the
Immaculate Heart of the
Blessed Virgin Mary

"Be Not Afraid; my Immaculate Heart 
will be your refuge and your safe passage to God."
Our Lady of Fatima

"Everything in Mary 
leads us toward her Son,
our only Savior, 
by whose foreseen merits she was preserved
immaculate and full of grace;
everything in Mary lifts up our hearts
to the praise of the Holy Trinity.

The Church sees Mary, then,
not as the goal, but as the guide,
who always leads souls who honor her
with true devotion – to her Son,
especially to Jesus 
in the Blessed Sacrament."

Fr Paul Duffner, O.P.

"Mary, give me your Heart: 
so beautiful, so pure, so immaculate:
your Heart so full of love and humility that 
I may be able to receive Jesus in the Bread of Life 
and love Him as you love Him and serve Him 
in the distressing guise of the poor."
St Teresa of Calcutta

Immaculate Heart of Mary,
cause of our joy, lead us and pray for us!
