Devotion to Mary.............August 1

"Many will not let devotion
to the Blessed Virgin even take root in their hearts. But blessed is the person
who accepts this grace and keeps it.
Such a devotion dwells in all
who are the Lord's heritage--
in all who will praise Him eternally in heaven."

St. Alphonsus Liguori

French words:
"Mary, your name itself is a prayer,
a sign of peace and of pardon,
of mercy and of hope."

Sorry that I forgot to translate this card yesterday.

Here is the meaning of the French words:

"Mary, your name itself is a prayer, a sign of peace and of pardon, of mercy and of hope."

PS: August 2 is the day of commemoration of Mary as Our Lady of the Angels.
