The Pro Sanctity Family celebrates Mary under the title of Our Lady of Trust and fosters devotion to her.  The Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary of Trust is celebrated on the Sunday preceding Ash Wednesday.

Our Lady of Trust

 We venerate Mary under the special title of Our Lady of Trust, Our lady of Confidence.  Bishop Giaquinta, who studied in the Major Seminary in Rome, had a great devotion for Our Lady of Trust and chose her as patroness of the Pro Sanctity Family.  He taught us that Mary of Trust inspires confidence, gives us courage, helps us understand and come in touch with the good that is in us, in others, in the world. 

He said also to us that our charism to live personal/family/social holiness and to spread the universal call to holiness all over the world is a hard, demanding challenge, and only by placing trust in Mary can we hope to pursue it.  The invocation, “My Mother, My Confidence” was often on his lips, an invocation that he learned as a youth from Cardinal Borgoncini from Lucca. 

In the Prayer to Our Lady of Trust, Bishop Giaquinta wrote, “When sin entices us, stay with us and be our strength; when mediocrity absorbs us, do not leave us; when the ascent to the perfection of the Father makes us weary, whisper a word of help, O Mary, Trust!”

All our Bethanies and Pro Sanctity centers have pictures of our Lady of Trust.
