Don’t blame me, Lord

Some of Venerable Fulton Sheen’s thoughts on our Blessed Lady:

“What would you think of one who professed to be a true friend of yours and yet who never spoke to your mother? That is what our Lord thinks of those who have no veneration to His Virgin Mother”

“Mary, who is the Virgin Most Pure, is also the Refuge of Sinners. She knows what sin is, not by the experience of its fall, not by tasting its bitter regrets, but by seeing what it did to her divine Son”

“It is a Christian tradition that no one who is devoted to her is ever lost. There is a story to the effect that one day as our Lord was walking through the courts of Heaven, He saw some souls who seemed to have won Heaven quite easily. “Peter,” He asked, “how did these souls gain entry into my kingdom?” Peter answered: “Don’t blame me, Lord; every time I close a door, Your Mother opens a window”

Our Lady, Mirror of Justice, pray for us!

Venerable Fulton Sheen, pray for us!
