Saint Hannibal's Devotion to Maria Bambinella

Saint Hannibal's Devotion to Maria Bambinella
Saint Hannibal was a great Marian devotee.  No feast of the Virgin Mary, under whatever title, was ever forgotten.  Novenas, songs, prayers, vigils and fastings were done in her honor.  One of the favorite titles of Mary that Saint Hannibal loved, was the Maria Bambinella.  He let people photograph himself bearing her in his hands.  He wanted that each community of the Rogationists and Daughters of Divine Zeal should have Maria Bambinella, and  solemn celebration on her feast should be done.  Before his death, the Blessed Virgin Mary, comforted him in his final earthly life by appearing to him as the little child Mary.

See the clouds

Unlock the door of eyelids

Go down below, deep yearningsThe Help


Life is a kiss

All joy of eternal slumber,

When GOD sings

When angels dance

When rainbows rain jelly beans


Smiles and Saints, glory, glory!

Sit on GOD's lap,

Be forever merry -

And jelly beans for all.

With all that happens now -

How like rags we kiss the ground

How like water we would flow

And unstopping, lend our thoughts of kindness.

And because we're all imperfect, and we want to help,

Our prayers and good
