May is the month of Mary.

Grant, we beseech Thee, almighty God, that we Thy faithful people, who rejoice in the name and protection of the most holy Virgin Mary, may by her loving intercession be delivered from all evils here on earth, and be made worthy to reach eternal glory in the life to come. Amen.

Our Lady of Mercy and St. Joseph pray for us.
