Let Us Pray
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, we fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, our Mother; to thee we come; before thee we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer us. Amen.
Join us in praying the following petitions. Lord hear our prayer.
We pray for...
...my sister-in-law Susie whose liver is failing.
... the spiritual protection of Monsignor Holmes.
...our 1 year old son Paul to be healed, grow up properly, and live a long and holy life.
