Mary, Help Of Christians # 1

O Mary, I wish I could see how
you used to behave toward father and mother,
especially toward St. Anne;
and then how you behaved toward the priests of the temple;
and then toward St. Joseph;
and toward St. Elizabeth,
and St. John the Baptist;
and afterwards toward the Apostles,
especially toward St. John.
I should see how sweet
and lovely you were to every one of them;
but still your heart was with Jesus only.
And they would all feel and understand this,
however kind you were to them.

Amen.

(By John Henry Cardinal Newman)
