In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. And he came to her and said, "Hail, O favored one, the Lord is with you!"
– Luke 1:26-28

Who is protecting the Church? If not the Virgin Mary...
When the child Jesus is under attack. What does he do? He runs to His Blessed Mother Mary.
If we love Mary, if we are devoted to her... then we can never lose faith in Her Beloved Son.
In how many ways does our devotion to Mary strengthen our faith? If we believe what the Gospel tells us about her -- and how could we not and still call ourselves Christians -- then we can have no doubt that Jesus is the Son of God.
Mary is the participant and the witness of the greatest miracle of all time. She speaks to us through her silence and humility.
Look at the attacks against the Church. And think -- how much more effective would they be without the protection of the Virgin?
God the Father. How do we know this is true? Because of Mary.
Christ the Son of God. Mary affirms it.
Jesus Christ, the Word, became flesh... through Mary
What kind of monster would dare attack a woman with child? We know the answer from Revelation -- a dragon.
Think of all the attacks on the Church by atheists, secularists, feminists, socialists. Why have they failed? Mary!
