"The most blessed Virgin can obtain everything from God, because she is His true Mother, and is so much beloved by Him; and she will do everything for us, because she is our Mother also, and loves us so much.
"Let us, therefore, always try to gain her friendship more and more; let us ingratiate ourselves with her more and more, by continually fostering in ourselves devotion towards her. Every day let us say her Rosary. Fast in her honor every Saturday. Observe the novenas and the fast before all her principal feasts. Practice some devotion also on all her smaller, even her smallest feasts. And let us, besides, in all our necessities, in all our misfortunes, have recourse to her, have confidence in her; and through her security in life, security in death, security through all eternity."
~ St. Alphonsus Liguori
