Can the Virgin Mary Take Care of Me?

An Irish boy asked his priest, "Will the blessed Virgin Mary take care of me?"

"Yes, my son, if you are true to all the requirements of the holy Catholic Church, she will take care of you."

"Are you sure she will take care of me?"

"Quite sure, if you do as I command you."

"Will she keep my soul, and take me to Heaven safely when I die?"

"Yes, if you die in the bosom of the Church."

"You are very sure, sir?"

"Yes; quite sure."

"Well, sir, I am not sure; for I read that once, in going from Jerusalem, she lost her own child; and if she could lose him she might lose me."

But Jesus can and will take care of you, and save you, if you put all your trust in him.
~The Youth's Instructor December 1, 1870
