"Never was it known, that anyone who implored thy help, or sought thine intercession, was left unaided"
For centuries Catholics have invoked Mary the Mother of Jesus under the title of Our Mother of Perpetual Help. First on the island of Crete, then in the Augustinian Church of St. Matthew in Rome, and finally in the Redemptorist Church of St. Alphonsus. Faithful to the command of Venerable Pius IX to "Make her known," the Redemptorists have spread this devotion throughout the entire world. Everywhere these missionaries have gone they have proclaimed her name and told of her glories so that from the simplest island hut to the palaces of kings her image has found a home. She is honored with solemn devotions in every country and there are few churches where her image is not enshrined. But more importantly, she has found a home in the hearts of men, women and children who look to her as their own mother and helper in all the necessities and trials of life.
Whatever your needs are, she will help you. Turn to her in prayer and ask her intercession with her Son. Even as she lovingly holds and supports Him, so will she lovingly hold and support you if you but ask with faith and confidence.
You can find prayers recited by faithful clients the world over on the Mother of Perpetual Help Blog. Daily or weekly they say these or other prayers asking her help. Some continue them for nine days in a row making a novena. Some will do this on the same day of the week for nine weeks. Others will simply turn to her as a child to a mother and ask for help.
From the very beginning she has been the Mother of Miracles. The exvotos left at her shrines bear testimony to this as do the letters and stories of millions of clients. So turn to her with confidence and know that your Mother of Perpetual Help will help you no matter how difficult your situation. And always remember, that never was it know, that anyone who implored her help or sought her intercession was ever left unaided.
