We are being advised by Jesus, in His last wish to accept the Blessed Virgin Mary us our mother. With Virgin Mary on our side, nothing can go wrong. But sometimes while we are in bad situations we may think that we have been abandoned by God but be assured that Our Mother Mary cannot forsake those who run to her for Help.
Prayer: Oh, Kind and Loving Virgin Mary, never has it been heard that you have abandoned those who have sought your help and your Prayers. With the same hope we run to you Oh, Virgin of Virgins, we submit to you we sinners, we ask that you accept our prayers and intercede for us to Your Son our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
