Quote from the Saint:

“There is then an upward as well as a downward road — a road to good and a road to evil. Avoid the evil and choose the good. If you cannot do this by yourself, pray with the prophet and in his words: Remove from me the way of iniquity.”

– Saint Bernard of Clairvaux


To increase devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, it is advisable to pray daily the 15 mysteries of the Rosary.
