From the Apostolic Digest


He is cursed of God who angers His Mother.


Without the Blessed Virgin, a person travels along the road to damnation.

St. Ildephonsus

No one will ever be the servant of the Son without serving the Mother.

St. Ildephonsus

For if we are bidden to honor carnal fathers and mothers, how much more the spiritual? . . . If this virtue of charity has been overlooked, a man will lose any fruit of salvation in any good he may do.

Pope St. Gregory VII

The honor of Mary is so intimately connected with the honor and glory of Jesus that to deny the one is at the same time a denial of the other.

Ven. William Joseph Chaminade
Let not that man presume to look for mercy from God who offends His Holy Mother!

St. Louis Marie de Montfort

Not only do they offend thee, O Lady, who outrage thee, but thou art also offended by those who neglect to ask thy favors . . . He who neglects the service of the Blessed Virgin will die in his sins . . . He who does not invoke thee, O Lady, will never get to Heaven . . . Not only will those from whom Mary turns her countenance not be saved, but there will be no hope of their salvation . . . No one can be saved without the protection of Mary.

St. Bonaventure

It is impossible to save one's soul without devotion to Mary and without her protection.

St. Anselm

Woe to those who despise devotion to Mary! . . . The soul cannot live without having recourse to Mary and recommending itself to her. He falls and is lost who does not have recourse to Mary.

St. Alphonsus Maria Liguori

To desire grace without recourse to the Virgin Mother is to desire to fly without wings.

Pope Pius XII

We may seek graces, but shall never find them without the intercession of Mary.

St. Cajetan

There is no one, O Most Holy Mary, who can know God except through thee; no one who can be saved or redeemed but through thee, O Mother of God; no one who can be delivered from dangers but through thee, O Virgin Mother; no one who obtains mercy but through thee, O Filled-With-All-Grace!

St. Germanus of Constantinople
The conflict with Hell cannot be maintained by men, even the most clever. The Immaculata alone has from God the promise of victory over Satan.

St. Maximilian Mary Kolbe

I have great doubts about the salvation of those who do not have special devotion to Mary.

St. Francis Borgia

It seems unbelievable that a man should perish in whose favor Christ said to His Mother: "Behold thy son"
----- provided that he has not turned a deaf ear to the words which Christ addressed to him: "Behold thy Mother."

St. Robert Bellarmine

If you would enter into Life, keep the Commandments . . . Honor thy father and thy mother.

St. Matthew 19:17, 19

Behold thy Mother!

St. John 19:27

Jesus honored her before all ages, and will honor her for all ages. No one comes to Him, nor even near Him, no one is saved or sanctified, if he too will not honor her. This is the lot of Angels and of men.

St. Maximilian Mary Kolbe

A man is no true Christian if he has no devotion to the Mother of Jesus Christ.

St. John Eudes
