From Occidentalis
St Bernard of Clairvaux
The Memorare of Saint Bernard the Abbot:
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.
A tip of the biretta to Cistercian oblate and friend Larry Reilly and other members of the Cistercian family.
