Who is she that comes forth as the morning rising,
fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in array?
Rejoice, O Virgin Mary,you alone have destroyed all heresies in the whole world. - Little Office
Thou art all fair O Mary
and the original stain is not in thee,
O Mary, by thy holy and Immaculate Conception
make my body pure and my spirit holy.
Our Lady "is the sure means, the direct and immaculate way to Jesus, and the perfect guide to him, it is through her that souls who are to shine forth in sanctity must find him. He who finds Mary finds life, that is, Jesus Christ." - St. Louis De Montfort

O Mary, conceived without sin - pray for us who have recourse to thee! O Mary! Most holy and immaculate virginity! Pray for us who have recourse to thee, and for those who do not - especially the enemies of the Church, and those recommended to thee.
Cause of our joy!
