2015.09.26 BVM Morning Star DSCN0213

In the Revelations of St. Bridget, Mary is called the star going before the sun. By which we are to understand, that when devotion to the Divine Mother first dawns in a sinful soul, it is a certain sign that God will soon come to enrich her with his grace.
…St. Bernard gives us this advice: If you do not wish to be overwhelmed by the tempest of temptations, do not turn your eyes from this star of salvation. And then he adds: Following Mary, you cannot go astray; if Mary protects you, you cannot fear being lost; if Mary favors you, you will arrive at paradise.

-From the Glories of Mary by St. Alphonsus de Liguori
