Mary grants mercy from Jesus the judge, according to Rome

St. Anselm, to increase our confidence, adds, that ‘when we have recourse to this divine Mother, not only we may be sure of her protection, but that often we shall be heard more quickly, and be thus preserved, if we have recourse to Mary and call on her holy name, than we should be if we called on the name of Jesus our Saviour,’ and the reason he gives for it is, ‘that to Jesus as a judge, it belongs to punish; but mercy alone belongs to the Blessed Virgin as a patroness.

Liguori, in James White, The Roman Catholic Controversy, Bethany, 1996, p.216
