In every good choice, as far as depends on us, our intention must be simple. I must consider only the end for which I am created, that is, for the praise of God our Lord and for the salvation of my soul! Hence, whatever I choose, must help me to this end for which I am created.
I must not subject and fit the end to the means but the means to the end.

Nostra Signora delle Grazie
A vintage holy card of the miraculous statue of Our Lady of Grace in Nettuno, Italy.
The statue in Nettuno is believed to originate from Ipswich in England, which before the Reformation was an important shrine dedicated to Our Lady of Graces. According to one account, the image was brought to Italy by sailors, who had smuggled it onto a ship just before it was meant to be publicly burned in London by Protestant iconoclasts.
PRAY TO HER. SHE IS OUR MOTHER READY TO SHOWER HER GRACES THE MOMENT WE CALL HER
