People worldwide often report God performing miracles through Mary (who served as the mother of Jesus Christ on Earth and is known popularly as Saint Mary or the Virgin Mary). Those miracles range from apparitions that encourage people to prayers for healing that are answered. Here are some inspirational quotes about Mary's miraculous power:

"If you ever feel distressed during your day -- call upon our Lady -- just say this simple prayer: 'Mary, Mother of Jesus, please be a mother to me now.' I must admit -- this prayer has never failed me." -- Blessed Mother Teresa

"Mary, give me your Heart: so beautiful, so pure, so immaculate; your heart so full of love and humility that I may be able to receive Jesus in the Bread of Life and love him as you love him and serve him in the distressing guise of the poor." -- Blessed Mother Teresa

"Men do not fear a powerful hostile army as the powers of hell fear the name and protection of Mary." -- Saint Bonaventure

"We never give more honor to Jesus than when we honor his Mother, and we honor her simply and solely to honor him all the more perfectly. We go to her only as a way leading to the goal we seek -- Jesus, her Son." -- Saint Louis Marie de Montfort

"Before, by yourself, you couldn't. Now, you've turned to our Lady, and with her, how easy!" --Saint Josemaria Escriva

"In dangers, in doubts, in difficulties, think of Mary, call upon Mary. Let not her name depart from your lips, never suffer it to leave your heart.

And that you may obtain the assistance of her prayer, neglect not to walk in her footsteps. With her for guide, you shall never go astray; while invoking her, you shall never lose heart; so long as she is in your mind, you are safe from deception; while she holds your hand, you cannot fall; under her protection you have nothing to fear; if she walks before you, you shall not grow weary; if she shows you favor, you shall reach the goal." -- Saint Bernard of Clairvaux

"If you invoke the Blessed Virgin when you are tempted, she will come at once to your help, and Satan will leave you." -- Saint John Vianney

"When we were little, we kept close to our mother in a dark alley or if dogs barked at us. Now, when we feel temptations of the flesh, we should run to the side of our Mother in Heaven, by realizing how she is to us, and by means of aspirations. She will defend us and lead us to the light." -- Saint Josemaria Escriva

"Love our Lady. And she will obtain abundant grace to help you conquer in your daily struggle." -- Saint Josemaria Escriva

"All the sins of your life seem to be rising up against you. Don't give up hope! On the contrary, call your holy mother Mary, with the faith and abandonment of a child. She will bring peace to your soul." -- Saint Josemaria Escriva

"To serve the Queen of Heaven is already to reign there, and to live under her commands is more than to govern." -- Saint John Vianney

"Let us run to Mary, and, as her little children, cast ourselves into her arms with a perfect confidence." -- Saint Francis de Sales

"For God, having given her power over his only-begotten and natural Son, also gave her power over his adopted children -- not only in what concerns their body -- which would be of little account -- but also in what concerns their soul." -- Saint Louis Marie de Montfort

"Always stay close to this Heavenly Mother, because she is the sea to be crossed to reach the shores of Eternal Splendor." -- Saint Padre Pio

"In trial or difficulty, I have recourse to Mother Mary, whose glance alone is enough to dissipate every fear." -- Saint Therese of Lisieux

"Seek refuge in Mary because she is the city of refuge. We know that Moses set up three cities of refuge for anyone who inadvertently killed his neighbor. Now the Lord has established a refuge of mercy, Mary, even for those who deliberately commit evil. Mary provides shelter and strength for the sinner." -- Saint Anthony of Padua

"Prayer is powerful beyond limits when we turn to the Immaculata who is queen even of God's heart." -- Saint Maximilian Kolbe

"Think of what the saints have done for their neighbor because they loved God.

But what saint's love for God can match Mary's? She loved Him more in the first moment of her existence than all the saints and angels who ever loved Him or will love Him. Our Lady herself revealed to Sister Mary Crucified that the fire of her love was most extreme. If heaven and earth were placed in it, they would be instantly consumed. And the ardors of the seraphim, compared with it, are like cool breezes. Just as there is not one among all the Blessed who loves God as Mary does, so there is no one, after God, who loves us as much as this most loving mother does. Furthermore, if we heaped together all the love that mothers have for their children, all the love of husbands and wives, all the love of all the angels and saints for their clients, it could never equal Mary's love for even a single soul." -- Saint Alphonsus Liguori
