Today we remember Mary as the Help of Christians.
This is the anniversary day of the foundation of the Daughters of Mary Immaculate (Marianist Sisters) in 1816. It is also the anniversary day in 1819 when the Vatican gave spiritual privileges to both the Society of Mary and the Daughters of Mary Immaculate (Marianist Sisters).
Let us pray: Mary, daughter of Wisdom we, your family, desire to be your living presence in the world today. Form us to be the faithful sons and daughters of your son, our brother, Jesus. Grant that we may always wholeheartedly respond to the graces sent to us by God. May the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit be glorified in all places through the Immaculate Virgin Mary. Amen.

we gather in spirit at the foot of the Cross
with your Mother and the disciple whom you loved.
We ask your pardon for our sins,
which are the cause of your death.
We thank you for remembering us
in that hour of salvation
and for giving us Mary as our Mother.
take us under your protection
and open us to the action of
the Holy Spirit.
obtain for us the grace of taking Mary
into our lives as you did,
and of assisting her in her mission.
May the Father and the Son
and the Holy Spirit
be glorified in all places
through the Immaculate Virgin Mary.

In the spring of 1917, three Catholic shepherd children living near Fatima reported apparitions of an Angel, and starting in May 1917, apparitions of the Virgin Mary, whom the children described as the Lady of the Rosary. The children reported a prophecy that prayer would lead to an end to the Great War, and that on 13 October of that year the Lady would reveal her identity and perform a miracle "so that all may believe." Newspapers reported the prophecies, and many pilgrims began visiting the area. The children's accounts were deeply controversial, drawing intense criticism from both local secular and religious authorities.

In 1858 at the French foothills of the Pyrenees a young girl named Bernadette Soubirous, her sister Toinette, and their friend Jeanne Abadie were out gathering firewood for their families. Toinette and Abadie crossed a stream to gather wood on the other side, but Bernadette hesitated, fearing that wading in the cold water would bring on an asthma attack.
When her sister and friend moved out of her sight, she decided to take a chance anyway, and started to remove her shoes. It was at that moment that she was startled by a great noise like thunder. Turning towards a grotto behind her, she saw a single rosebush swaying as if being blown by a strong wind. Almost immediately she also saw a golden cloud form over the rosebush and a young and beautiful lady appear in the cloud. The lady smiled at Bernadette and motioned for her to come closer. All the fear that Bernadette had felt a few moments earlier faded away at the sight of this lady. She felt safe as if with her mother.
