The Mother of God, hope of the hopeless!
Do not doubt that, hearing your anguished cries, she will come to you, wipe away your tears, alleviate your suffering and deliver you from distress, destruction, sorrow and despair.
All on earth have a loving and almighty Mother, one filled with light. She is an unconquerable wall, the hope of the hopeless and the joy of all the afflicted ones. And, when you suffer, when you are tormented, when it is truly hard to live, when you are on the verge of destruction, when you lose your hope and fall into despair, remember that despite the flaws and sins in your life, you have a very loving Mother! And trust that, as soon as you will call for her, she will come and will come to help, comfort, ease, and save!
Just call her, just tell her in tears, with hope, and with faith: ‘we have no other help, no other hope than only you, Our Lady! Help us as we believe in thee and in thee rejoice, for we are your servants and we are not ashamed.’ And do not doubt that hearing your anguished cries she will come to you, wipe away your tears, alleviate the sufferings and deliver you from distress, destruction, sorrow and despair.
