WHY WE SHOULD NEVER ABUSE OUR LADY’S ADVOCACY.

====

There were two young noblemen in Madrid, of whom one encouraged the other in leading a wicked life, and in committing all sorts of crimes. One night in a dream, one of them saw his friend being taken by certain dark men, and carried to a tempestuous sea. They were going to take him in a similar manner, but he had recourse to Mary, and made a vow that he would embrace the religious state on which he was delivered from those men.

He then saw Jesus on a throne, as if in anger, and the Blessed Virgin imploring mercy for him. After this his friend came to pay him a visit, and he then related what he had seen; but his companion only turned it into ridicule, and shortly afterwards, he was stabbed to death.

.

When the young man saw this his vision was verified, he went to confession, and renewed his resolution to enter a religious Order, and for this purpose he sold all that he had; but instead of giving it to the poor, as he had intended, he spent it in all sorts of debauchery.

.

He then fell ill, and had another vision. He thought he saw hell open, and the divine Judge, who had already condemned him.

.

Again he had recourse to Mary, and She once more delivered him. He recovered his health and went on worse than ever. He afterwards went to Lima in South America, where he relapsed into his former illness; and in the hospital of that place he was once more touched by the grace of God, confessed his sins to the Jesuit Father, Francis Perlino, and promised him that he would change his life; but again he fell into his former crimes.

.

At last the same Father, going into another hospital in a distant place, saw the miserable wretch extended on the ground, and heard him cry out: “Ah, abandoned wretch that I am! For my greater torment this Father has come to witness my chastisement. From Lima I came here, where my vices have brought me to this end; and now I go to hell.” With these words he expired, without even leaving the Father time to help him and his soul going to hell for eternity.

The Saints Quotes On Our Lady Of Sorrows The 5th Sorrow

As Compiled By St. Alphonsus Liguori – (The Glories Of Mary)  
​The 5th Sorrow of Our Lady:  

Jesus Dies on the Cross.



1. As St. Bernard says, love inflicted on the heart of Mary the same suffering that the nails caused in the body of Jesus.


2. Under the cross this mother in agony, who was suffering all the pain that her Son was suffering.


3. If the lips of Mary were silent, her heart was not so; for she did not cease offering  to divine justice the life of her Son for our salvation.


4. Thus the afflicted mother saw her Jesus suffering on every side, she desired to comfort him, but could not.


5. A Mother condemned to see an innocent Son, whom she loved with all the affection of her heart, put to death before her eyes.


6. Near the cross stood his mother, speechless; living she died; dying she lived.


7. But what increased most the sorrows which Mary suffered through compassion for her Son, was to hear him complain on the cross that even the eternal Father had abandoned him.
