Why Pray to the Blessed Virgin Mary?
One of the most popular and oft-requested prayers is the Our Father. But there’s another very special woman in our Heavenly Father’s life that deserves just as much love and respect: the Blessed Virgin Mary.

1. She’s an intercessor. Like we said, Mary is sinless, so she can be more effective when praying for others. Her prayers are also kept in Heaven, so they can have a bigger impact than ours could if we prayed them down here on Earth.

Homilies on the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, Doctor of the Church, said, “The Blessed Virgin Mary is the perfect model of prayer.” In this series of homilies, we’ll explore some of Saint Bernard’s reasons for praising the Blessed Virgin Mary.
First and foremost, Mary is a model of humility. She never asks for anything she doesn’t deserve. When she was asked to be the mother of God, she didn’t respond arrogantly or with haughtiness. Instead, she said yes with complete trust in God’s will.
Second, Mary is a model of faithfulness. She never stops praying even when her son is crucified and resurrected. Throughout her life, she remains completely devoted to God.
Third, Mary is a model of charity. Even when her son dies on the cross, she continues to offer her heartbroken soul in penance. She shows us how to forgive and how to love others sacrificially.
Fourth, Mary is a model of patience. No matter how hard things might be at times, she never gives up on God or on anyone else. She stands firm in her faith and refuses to give up on her dreams or desires for humanity.
