Prayer to our Blessed Mother
at the Sanctuary of Our Sorrowful Mother
O Mary, Blessed One of the Most High
And Mother of Grace,
Through you the Church lifts up her prayer of praise.
Beloved daughter of the Father,
by your acceptance of the word of the Angel Gabriel
you co-operated in the salvation of the world,
for in you the creature once again obeys its Creator.
Mother of Jesus,
by pondering the word in your heart
you showed us the way to Wisdom,
and opened to all people this same word of glad tidings.
Spouse, beloved of the Spirit, by accepting the Word of God
you gave life to the world through the gift of your Divine Son,
and in you humanity has become the dwelling-place of the Divine.
woman of prayer, we turn to you and ask:
support our prayers for ourselves, for all your Servants,
for our friends and our families, for those who share the Christian faith,
and for every person on Earth , that all might know peace and salvation.
Ask the Heavenly Father that we may truly know Christ,
be filled with the gifts of the Holy Spirit,
remain protected in all adversity and freed from every evil.
Help us to build God’s Kingdom:
an everlasting Kingdom of praise, justice, and peace.
We ask this through Christ, Our Lord.
