With Mary as the perfect role model, here are some quotes that reflect the beauty of a relationship with her.

Today we celebrate the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary. It comes exactly nine months before Mary’s nativity on September 8. In many countries around the world it is recognized as a day of celebration and much joy. And it’s a day where we can consider how the sinless life of Mary is such a great example for us all today, thousands of years after her conception.

So at a time when life feels particularly overwhelming, scary, and challenging for many, consider focusing on building a relationship with Mary. You can look to her for strength, guidance, love and understanding. And by growing closer to her, you’ll be developing an even deeper relationship with God Himself. As these quotes from holy men and women point out, seeking Mary’s intercession is like asking your mother for help.
