All Generations Will Call Me Blessed - Luke 1:48

Father Fryar came across this while doing some research and posted it on the FSSP-LA mobile APP.  Since some of you are not using the APP, it is posted here for you.  He had no idea that there is a Feast of Our Lady somewhere in the world, almost every day of the year!

Marian feast days are specific holy days of the liturgical year that Christians celebrate because of their local, regional, national or international importance. Some feasts celebrate certain events in the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary, others are in recognition of the Blessed Virgin Mary's ongoing involvement in the Catholic Church. This list of Marian Feasts illustrates the prophecy that is found in the Gospel of Luke:  "All generations will call me blessed." [Lk. 1:48]

September 12th is the Feast Day of The Most Holy Name of Mary

The Holy Name of Mary - The Power of Her Name
By St. Alphonsus de Liguori

Richard of St. Laurence states "there is not such powerful help in any name, nor is there any other name given to men, after that of Jesus, from which so much salvation is poured forth upon men as from the name of Mary." He continues, "that the devout invocation of this sweet and holy name leads to the acquisition of superabundant graces in this life, and a very high degree of glory in the next."

After the most sacred name of Jesus, the name of Mary is so rich in every good thing, that on earth and in heaven there is no other from which devout souls receive so much grace, hope, and sweetness.

Hence Richard of St. Laurence encourages sinners to have recourse to this great name, "because it alone will suffice to cure them of all their evils;" and "there is no disorder, however malignant, that does not immediately yield to the power of the name of Mary." The Blessed Raymond Jordano says, "that however hardened and diffident a heart may be, the name of this most Blessed Virgin has such efficacy, that if it is only pronounced that heart will be wonderfully softened." Moreover, it is well known, and is daily experienced by the clients of Mary, that her powerful name gives the particular strength necessary to overcome temptations against purity.

In fine, "thy name, O Mother of God, is filled with divine graces and blessings," as St. Methodius says. So much so, that St. Bonaventure declares, "that thy name, O Mary, cannot be pronounced without bringing some grace to him who does so devoutly.". . grant, O Lady, that we may often remember to name thee with love and confidence; for this practice either shows the possession of divine grace, or else is a pledge that we shall soon recover it.   Read more...
