Hello everybody. Today’s Saturday Devotion to the Blessed Mother is none other than the Memorare. This prayer has been traditionally attributed to St. Bernard of Clairvaux. How fitting for us to praise the Queen of Heaven with his words, today on his feast day. Please join me in praying this beautiful prayer.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
– St Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153)
Thank you and don’t forget to offer little acts of love to our Blessed Mother on her special day.
