Titles of Our Lady as PATRONESS and DEFENDER



Mary is our patroness. We call upon her to protect, support and care for us. This she is able to do because of her wisdom and power and her interest in us. She loves us dearly and is eager to help us if we will just call upon her. As individuals we seek her as our patroness. So she is called the patroness of vocations, and of studies. She is our protectress against the assaults of the devil, the tower of David, impregnable wall. She is patroness of homes, of all who wear the scapular and of the sodalities. Members with certain hazardous occupations, such as missionaries, airmen and bull fighters, have chosen her as their protectress. She is the patroness of Catholic countries, and of our own United States. She has been called the salvation of the Roman people. She is the mighty and glorious protector of the Holy Church.
