We at the Virgin Mary Website praise God for Pope Francis and we will be honored and blessed to post to you what the Holy Father has proclaimed about the Blessed Virgin . One of Pope Francis’s first public act after his election was to pray to Jesus through Mary at the Basicalla of St Mary Major, a loving gesture and tradition also made by his predecessors. As a Cardinal in 2012, during the Easter Vigil he spoke of the mission of spreading the joy of Jesus to others as witnessed by our Blessed Virgin in this way:
“That night she, too, the Mother, was in vigil. Her insides made her intuit the closeness of that life which she conceived in Nazareth and her faith strengthened that intuition. We ask her, the first disciple, to teach us to persevere in the vigil, to accompany us in patience, to strengthen us in hope. We ask her to lead us to an encounter with her Risen Son; we ask her to free us from fear, so that we too can hear the angel’s message and run off… not out of fright but to announce it to others in this Buenos Aires that needs it so much!”(Zenit.org) Dr. Edward Mulholland
