The Most Holy Name of Mary – September 12

Wisdom Wed

The feast to honor the Holy Name of Mary was deemed a universal feast of the Church by Pope Innocent XI on September 12, 1683.

“In dangers, in hardship, in every doubt, think of Mary, call out to Mary.  Keep her in your mouth; keep her in your heart.  Follow the example of her life and you will obtain the favor of her prayers.  Following her you will never go astray.  Asking for her help, you will never despair.  Keeping her in your thoughts, you will never wander away.  With your hand in hers, you will never stumble. With her protection you will not be afraid.  With her leading you, you will never tire.  Her kindness will see you through the end. then you will know by your own experience how true it is that the Virgin’s name is Mary.”

~ Saint Bernard of Clairvoux
