St. Bernard of Clairvaux

St. Bernard of Clairvaux says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“I have come to recite to you the third day of the novena to Mary, Protectress and Refuge.”

Day 3
“Mary, my Mother, Protectress and Refuge, open the inner recesses of Your Heart to me. Purify my soul–poor sinner that I am–in the Flame of Your Heart.”

“I surrender to You now all my sins, that which leads me into sin, and all my lack of trust. Help me to conform to the Divine Will of God. Amen.”

Prayer to be said every day:

“Mary, my Mother, Protectress and Refuge–Your Immaculate Heart is our safe harbor in any storm. Manifest now the power God has given You in answer to this plea–Mary, Protectress of the Faith and Refuge of Holy Love. Amen.”
