Our Lady of ______________

“We have… this instinct about our Blessed Lady, that she is not merely the Mother of all our fallen race, but Mother of each individually; not our Mother, but my Mother. Protestants sometimes laugh at us because we address ourselves, now to Our Lady of Perpetual Succour, now to Our Lady of Good Counsel, now to Our Lady of Lourdes, and so on, as if they were so many different people. But the case is much worse than that, if they only knew; every individual Catholic has a separate Our Lady to pray to, his Mother, the one who seems to care for him individually, has won him so many favours, has stood by him in so many difficulties, as if she had no other thought or business in heaven but to watch over him.”

– Msgr. Ronald Knox
