The devout Bernadine de Bustis says:  "O sinner, whoever you may be, despair not; but with confidence have recourse to this Lady:  you will find her hands filled with mercies and graces."  "And know also," "That this most compassionate Queen has a greater desire to do you good than you can have to be assisted by her."  I will ever, O my Lady, thank God for having taught me to know thee.  Unfortunate indeed should I be did I not know thee, or did I forget thee:  ill would it fare with my salvation.  But my Mother, I bless thee, I love thee; and so great is my confidence in thee, that I place my whole soul in thy hands.

Evening Sigh - O Mary, blessed is he who knows thee, and put his trust in thee!
