Say the name Jesus

The saints had a secret. They were always aware of God's presence.

Say the name, “Jesus” often, as you would say a friend’s name. Use the name, “Jesus” to drive away fear, to rescue from temptation, to banish loneliness and to conquer your faults.

When you tenderly say the name, “Jesus”, God Himself hears and quickly attends to you.

Hail Mary

Hail Mary full of grace

Consecration to Mary the Mother of God
