The ancient title "Mary, Help of Christians" refers to Mary's special assistance in our most difficult trials, and the trials of our Church. Organizations, churches, and ministries around the world have been founded under her intercession. Saint John Bosco saw first-hand the profound influence of Mary as patroness and protector, and said, "Have faith in the Blessed Sacrament and Mary, Help of Christians and you will see what miracles are."
