Pope Benedict: Mary is a help in believing
The following comes from Zenit.org:
Noting Tuesday's feast of Our Lady, Help of Christians, Benedict XVI is affirming that Mary helps build up faith in Christ.
The Pope made this observation as he concluded today's general audience with his traditional greeting to the young, the sick and newlyweds.
"Mary helps us, dear young people [...] to affirm each day your faith in Christ," he said.
The Holy Father voiced a prayer that Our Lady would obtain comfort and serenity for the sick. And he wished her encouragement on newlyweds, "to translate into daily life the commandment of love."
