Mary, also known as St. Mary the Virgin, the Blessed Virgin Mary, Saint Mary, Mary Mother of God or the Virgin Mary is believed by many to be the greatest of all Christian saints.
The Virgin Mother "was, after her Son, exalted by divine grace above all angels and men."
The confidence that each person should have in Mary was expressed by Pope Pius IX in the encyclical Ubipriinum : "The foundation of all our confidence. . . is found in the Blessed Virgin Mary. For God has committed to Mary the treasury of all good things, in order that everyone may know that through her are obtained every hope, every grace, and all salvation. For this is his will, that we obtain everything through Mary."
The Blessed Virgin Mary may be taken as a patroness of any good activity, for she is often cited as the patroness of all humanity.
O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

The Image of the Divine Mercy is a depiction of Jesus based on the devotion of the mercy of God, particularly as a form of thanksgiving and entrustment to God.
The Divine Mercy can be traced back to St. Faustina Kowalska, a polish nun, and is based on the bible verse: “Ask and it shall be given to you; seek, and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you.”
In that anyone who seeks God’s mercy shall not be turned away.
"I promise that the soul that will venerate this image will not perish," Jesus told Faustina, according to her diary, which has been studied and authenticated by the Church over several decades.
"I also promise victory over enemies already here on earth, especially at the hour of death. I myself will defend it as My own glory."
Jesus is shown in most versions as raising his right hand in blessing, and pointing with his left hand on the Sacred Heart from which flow forth two rays: one red and one pale.
The depiction contains the message Jesus, I trust in you.
The rays streaming out have symbolic meaning: red for the blood of Jesus (which is the Life of Souls), and pale for the water (which justifies souls).
The whole image is a symbol of charity, forgiveness and love of God, referred to as the "Fountain of Mercy".
