Mother of Trust

Mary, Mother of Trust!  This most pacifying title corresponds to the invitation, repeated in the Gospel and addressed to the Virgin by the Angel and then so many other times by Jesus to his disciples:  "Do not be afraid" (cf. Luke 1:30).  "Do not be afraid, for I am with you," says the Lord.  In the icon of Our Lady of Trust, in which the Child points to the Mother, it seems that Jesus is adding, "Look at your Mother and do not fear."  

~Pope Benedict XVI, 2/1/08 Homily

Dear Mary, Mother of Trust, always keep me close to you and your Beloved Son, Jesus!
