Imitate Your Mother, Our Twelve Star General!

It's Monday, the start of a new week and a new month. Every first day is a good time to reflect on your role as a warrior in the Church Militant. Mary wasn't a week, 16-year-old girl who stood around weeping and wringing her hands over evil. She represents the captain of the guard, Queen of angels and saints. And she engages the enemy directly. Meditate on these image of Mary and then put on the armor of God and fight on the battlefield behind your General, rosary in hand and Confession and Eucharist in your swordbelt!

Some wag portrayed this with the rhyme: Hail Mary, full of grace,
punch the devil in the Face!
Looks like Baby Jesus is cheering for His Momma, the Queen of Heaven, who has no
problem decking the evil one. If you're her warrior servant, you're in good hands!
The dragon is no match for Mom!
It doesn't matter what form Satan takes, Mary defeats Him. 
Put on the armor of God and hold your ground. Every day is a good day to say the rosary and ask Mary to help you fight courageously under the standard of her Son, Christ the King. 

Our Lady, twelve star general of the army of God, intercede for us and lead us to victory against the wiles and ravages of the evil one! Viva Cristo Rey!
