saintsations week eight.

“The world would have peace if only men of politics would follow the Gospels.”

"There is no sinner in the world, however much at enmity with God, who cannot recover God's grace by recourse to Mary, and by asking her assistance."

As Saint Bridget for a long time wanted to know the number of blows Our Lord received during His Passion, He one day appeared to her and said: “I received 5480 blows on My Body.  If you wish to honor them in some way, say 15 Our Fathers and 15 Hail Mary’s with the following Prayers (which He taught her) for a whole year.  When the year is up, you will have honored each one of My Wounds.”

here is link to the 15 prayers.

that the royalty were more content to admire her piety rather than imitate it really spoke to me. i find myself doing that a lot, a lot, a lot.
