Our Lady of Consolation
Starting in the 2nd century, Catholics venerated Mary as Our Lady of Consolation, one of Her earliest Titles of Honor. The Title of “Our Lady of Consolation“, or “Mary, Consoler of the Afflicted”, comes from the Latin Consolatrix Afflictorum. It is found in the Litany of Loreto.
V33 – 6.6.35 – “Now, while He was saying this, my Dear Jesus Showed me, with facts, how the Sovereign Queen Descended from Heaven with an Unspeakable Majesty, and a Tenderness Fully Maternal; and She went Around in the midst of creatures, throughout all nations, and She Marked Her dear children and those who were not to be touched by the scourges. Whomever My Celestial Mama Touched, the scourges had no power to touch those creatures. Sweet Jesus gave to His Mama the Right to Bring to Safety whomever She Pleased. How moving it was to see the Celestial Empress Going Around to all places of the world, taking creatures in Her Maternal Hands, Holding them Close to Her Breast, Hiding them under Her Mantle, so that no evil could harm those whom Her Maternal Goodness Kept in Her Custody, Sheltered and Defended. Oh! if all could see with how Much Love and Tenderness the Celestial Queen Performed this Office, they would cry of consolation and would love She Who So Much Loves us.”
