Our Lady of Perpetual Help, pray for us!
Our Priestly Patron - The Cure of Ars
“You show me the way to Ars and I'll show you the way to heaven."
Our Religious Patroness - St Therese of Lisieux
"Let us convert souls; this year, we must form many priests who love Jesus and who handle Him with the same tenderness with which Mary handled Him in His cradle."
Our single laywoman patroness - St Gemma Galgani
"Jesus is the owner of my heart, and belonging to Him I find that I can smile even in the midst of tears."
Our Wife and Mother Patroness - Blessed Anna Maria Taigi
"The practices of mortification should be moderated by prudence and the advice of a wise director because it often happens that the devil urges a soul to excessive penances to tire her and render her unfit for the service of God and the fulfillment of her duties."
Venerable "Mamma Margaret" The holy mother of St John Bosco
"When you came into the world I consecrated you to the Blessed Virgin Mary. When you began your studies, I inculcated this devotion in you. Now I want you to belong totally to her. Make your companions those who are devoted to Mary; and if you reach ordination, never cease to inculcate and spread this devotion."
God our Father, we thank you for making Mamma Margaret a strong and wise woman, a heroic mother and a wise educator. Give us the joy of seeing her raised to the honour of the altars so that all may imitate her way of holiness, lived as daily and humble service of her neighbor. Through her intercession grant us the grace we request with a trusting heart. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
