A Woman Clothed With the Sun…


Feast of the Holy Name of Mary
September 12th, 2018
She comes forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, and terrible as an army set in battle array. Clothed in celestial light, surrounded by heavenly hosts, crowned with cosmic stars, and throned among countless roses, she stands.
Her beauty is endlessly captivating, inspiring childlike hearts to awe, wonder, and instant conversion through the penetrating rays of Divine Grace reflected off her Immaculate Hands and the burning flames of Divine Love spread through her Immaculate Heart.
Awaken, O sleeper, and marvel at this most beautiful and blessed, glorious and graceful, loving and beloved Woman in all of Paradise! Indeed, she is worth gazing at for all of eternity, and yet after just one look into her loving, merciful eyes and sweet, serene smile, the soul has had its fill forever.
She is the the personification of goodness, the definition of holiness, the perfection of virtue, the height, breadth, and depth of the human person fully alive, as Daughter, Spouse, and Mother the Most Holy Trinity. For within Her Most Pure womb, She intimately holds and houses God’s very Self, Son, and Spirit, radiating His supreme Love, sublime Joy, and supernatural Peace infinitely outward.
She is Queen of the whole Universe, of all Angels and Apostles, all Saints and sinners, all of Heaven and Earth alike.
Her name is Mary.
But you can simply call her Mom.
Oh blessed Mother,
Mother of Salvation for the whole world,
pray that my love for Jesus can be re-kindled.
Help me to feel the Flame of His Love,
so that it fills my soul.
Help me to love Jesus more.
Pray that my faith, love and devotion for Him,
become stronger.
Allay any doubts, which torment me,
and help me to see clearly the Divine Light of the Truth,
which radiates from your beloved Son,
the Savior of all humanity.
(From Crusade Prayer #47: Re-kindle your love for Jesus)
“A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.”
-Revelation 12:1
“There is not such powerful help in any name, nor is there any other name given to men, after that of Jesus, from which so much salvation is poured forth upon men as from the name of Mary.”
“…the devout invocation of this sweet and holy name leads to the acquisition of superabundant graces in this life, and a very high degree of glory in the next.”
-Richard of St. Laurence
From “The Holy Name of Mary, the Power of her Name”
By Alphonsus Ligouri:
(just listen to the first 5 minutes, trust me!)
