“Quotes About Mary -2”
©2014 James Dacey, Jr. OFS

“There is no one, O Most Holy Mary, who can know God except through thee; no one who can be saved or redeemed but through thee, O Mother of God; no one who can be delivered from dangers but through thee, O Virgin Mother; no one who obtains mercy but through thee, O Filled-With-All-Grace!” ~St. Germanus of Constantinople

“For if we are bidden to honor carnal fathers and mothers, how much more the spiritual? . . . If this virtue of charity has been overlooked, a man will lose any fruit of salvation in any good he may do.” ~Pope Saint Gregory VII

“It is impossible to save one's soul without devotion to Mary and without her protection.” ~St. Anselm, Archbishop and Doctor of the Church

“Not only do they offend thee, O Lady, who outrage thee, but thou art also offended by those who neglect to ask thy favors . . . He who neglects the service of the Blessed Virgin will die in his sins . . . He who does not invoke thee, O Lady, will never get to Heaven . . . Not only will those from whom Mary turns her countenance not be saved, but there will be no hope of their salvation . . . No one can be saved without the protection of Mary.” ~St. Bonaventure, Cardinal-Bishop and Doctor of the Church

“We may seek graces, but shall never find them without the intercession of Mary.” ~St. Cajetan, Founder of the Theatines

“I have great doubts about the salvation of those who do not have special devotion to Mary.” ~St. Francis Borgia

“It seems unbelievable that a man should perish in whose favor Christ said to His Mother: ‘Behold thy son’, provided that he has not turned a deaf ear to the words, which Christ addressed to him: ‘Behold thy Mother.” ~St. Robert Bellarmine, Cardinal-Bishop and Doctor of the Church

“A man is no true Christian if he has no devotion to the Mother of Jesus Christ.” ~St. John Eudes

“All true children of God have God for their father and Mary for his mother; anyone who does not have Mary for his mother, does not have God for his father.” ~St. Louis Marie de Montfort

“Let not that man presumes to look for mercy from God who offends His Holy Mother!” ~St. Louis Marie de Montfort

“For God, having given her power over his only-begotten and natural Son, also gave her power over his adopted children - not only in what concerns their body - which would be of little account - but also in what concerns their soul.” ~St. Louis Marie de Montfort

“We must conclude that, being necessary to God by a necessity which is called "hypothetical", (that is, because God so willed it), the Blessed Virgin is all the more necessary for men to attain their final end. Consequently we must not place devotion to her on the same level as devotion to the other saints as if it were merely something optional.” ~St. Louis Marie de Montfort

“The pious and learned Jesuit, Suarez, Justus Lipsius, a devout and erudite theologian of Louvain, and many others have proved incontestably that devotion to our Blessed Lady is necessary to attain salvation. This they show from the teaching of the Fathers, notably St. Augustine, St. Ephrem, deacon of Edessa, St. Cyril of Jerusalem, St. Germanus of Constantinople, St. John Demascene, St. Anselm, St. Bernard, St. Bernardine, St. Thomas and St. Bonaventure. Even according to Oecolampadius and other heretics, lack of esteem and love for the Virgin Mary is an infallible sign of God's disapproval. On the other hand, to be entirely and genuinely devoted to her is a sure sign of God's approval.” ~St. Louis Marie de Montfort
“The greatest saints, those richest in grace and virtue will be the most assiduous in praying to the most Blessed Virgin, looking up to her as the perfect model to imitate and as a powerful helper to assist them.” ~St. Louis Marie de Montfort
