• How can we intensify our love for Jesus? Attend daily mass? You don't want to intensify your love that much? Well, then, how about saying one extra Hail Mary every day for the salvation of all children of God.

Children's Liturgy of the Word

Do you ask Mary to pray for you? She will, you know. Ask her to help you love like she did.
