Fr. Colin, SM said, “… that our Lord left the Blessed Virgin behind on earth after His Ascension is without doubt a great mystery. The apostles needed her to guide them and to be in a sense the foundress of the Church. At the end of time her protection will shine forth in an even greater way …”
At the cross her station keeping,
Stood the mournful Mother weeping,
Near her Son until the end.
May Mary be Our Guide and Example of Courage in Lent.
