Rejoice in the Lord – May 12, 2022

171 Clifton Avenue, Newark, NJ 07104(973) 497-4000 | rcan.orgIn his latest newsletter, Cardinal Tobin explains why we turn to Mary in times of war

Two years ago, when the entire world was caught in the grips of the COVID-19 pandemic, and millions of people throughout the world were affected by physical, spiritual, economic and psychological hardships, including severe sickness and death, I began to implore the Blessed Virgin Mary, Health of the Sick, on a daily basis for her intercession and help.
Throughout the ages, Christians have turned to Mary in times of war, pestilence and famine. In troubled times like these, she is a sure refuge, a source of comfort and hope. When we urgently seek her intercession and aid, she never fails to respond. Now that we are once again witnessing the horrors of unjust aggression and senseless violence in Ukraine and other regions of the world, I want to renew my appeal to the Queen of Peace, our tender and compassionate Mother Mary, for assistance and hope.
