“I recommend to you a strong, constant devotion to Mary, our most holy and sorrowful virgin. Think often of her and sympathize with her in her sufferings. Then, this loving mother, who is never outdone in kindness will in turn comfort you.
Pour out your heart to her. Speak to her of your trials and your needs. Commend your family to her, and the important concern of your soul. . . . How much we cost her! . . . She chose that her own beloved Son should die bleeding on the cross rather than that we should be forever lost."
(From a letter of Saint Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows, CP)
