❝It is the boast of the Catholic religion that it has the gift of making the young heart chaste; and why is this but that it gives us Jesus Christ for our food, and Mary for our nursing Mother?❞ —John Henry Cardinal Newman
❝One day a sinner said to the Blessed Virgin, 'Show me you are my mother.' And She answered, 'And you, show me you are my son.' And to another one who also called Her, addressing Her as 'Mother of Mercy', She said, 'You sinners, when you want my help, you call me Mother of Mercy, but you never stop turning me into a mother of misery and pain by your sins.'❞ —Saint Alphonsus de Liguori
❝Having a motherly affection for us and being concerned for our salvation, She extends Her care to the whole human race. Appointed by the Lord as Queen of heaven and earth, raised above all the choirs of angels and the whole celestial hierarchy of saints, sitting at the right hand of Her only Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, She obtains with great certainty what She asks with Her motherly prayers; She obtains what She seeks and it cannot be denied Her.❞ —Pope Pius IX
