The Memorare

I founded Memorare Ministries under the patronage of the Blessed Mother and in honor of the prayer, The Memorare, which helped my late husband Bernie find his way to the heart of God after suffering a massive heart attack.  Mary teaches us to remember (memorare in Latin) God’s goodness and to recognize Christ’s presence with us in the midst of life’s tribulations.  She has surely done that for my family and me.

Having experienced the devastation of repeated tragedies in our extended family, I established Memorare Ministries to bring healing and hope to those struggling with adversity.  My own life experiences, along with the example of Mary, have compelled me to share the message that God IS good, that he is truly with us in our suffering and that he will give us the necessary grace not only to face life’s challenges, but to emerge from them strengthened in faith, hope and love.

Mary our Mother, pray for us!


The Memorare

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
