“Having confidence in you, O Mother of God, I shall be saved. Being under your protection, I shall fear nothing. With your help I shall give battle to my enemies and put them to flight; for devotion to you is an arm of salvation.”
– St. John Damascene
How is it that the Blessed Mother protects us and helps us put our enemies to flight? Why is she an “arm of salvation?” Is my devotion to her commensurate with her great mission?
