Our Lady Help Of Christians
Our Lady Help of Christians is associated with the defense of Christian Europe, the north of Africa and the Middle East from non-Christian peoples during the Middle Ages.
Saint John Bosco was an ardent promoter of devotion to "Mary, Help of Christians”, which helped her attain special renown that today includes veneration by many Chinese Catholics.
In 2007, Pope Benedict XVI designated May 24th her feast for the Roman Catholics in China facing persecution and restriction from the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association. Thus, we invoke OLHC to save our nation from the internal attacks against our Christianity and the stability of our great nation.
