We must never think from whence crosses come: they come from God. It is always God who gives us this way of proving our love to Him.
-St. John Vianney
O Mary, my good Mother, help me follow your example to be generous in every sacrifice Our Lord may ask of me during my life.
-St. Bernadette Soubirous
Queen of Heaven, rejoice, alleluia:
for the Son you were privileged to bear, alleluia,
is risen as he said, alleluia.
Pray for us to God, alleluia.
Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, alleluia!
For the Lord has truly risen, alleluia!
Let us pray. O God, who gave joy to the world through the Resurrection of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, grant, we beseech You, that through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, His Mother, we may obtain the joys of everlasting life. Through the same Christ our Lord.
