O God, Who gave joy to the whole world, through the Resurrection of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, grant, we pray, that through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, His Mother, we may share the same joys of eternal life. We ask this through Jesus Christ Your Son our Lord, Who with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, lives, one God, forever and ever. Amen.


Blessed Virgin Mary, Mediatrix of all Graces, pray for us, your children, who have recourse to you.



Prayers for the Month of Mary



Remember, O most compassionate Virgin Mary, that never was it known,

that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your assistance, or sought your intercession,

was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to you, O virgin of virgins, my mother,

to you I come, before you I kneel, sinful and sorrowful.

Mother of the Word Incarnate (Assist me, that I may open my heart to Gods Word, and, like you,

open my life to Christ, hat I may live with, in and for Jesus, as you did.)

Despise not my request, but in your clemency, hear and answer me.

Thanksgiving to God for the gift of Mary

Father, all-powerful and ever-living God, we do well always and everywhere to give you thanks; we especially praise you and proclaim your glory for the gift you gave us in the Blessed Virgin Mary.

She received your Word in the purity of her heart, and, conceiving in her virgin womb, gave birth to our Savior and so

              nurtured the Church at its beginning

She accepted Gods parting gift of love as she stood at the foot of the cross and so became the mother of all those who were brought to life through the death of her only Son.

She joined her prayers with those of the apostles, as together they awaited the coming of your Spirit, and so became the perfect pattern of the church at prayer.

Raised to the glory of heaven, she cares for the pilgrim Church with a mothers love, following its progress homeward until the day of the Lord dawns in splendor.

And so we thank you eternal and ever-living

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit for Mary our Mother, through whose almighty intercession we find our way more easily to you, who live forever.  Amen.

To Padre Pio 

for Childlike Trust in Marys Intercession

Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, pray for me, that with your childlike confidence in Our Lady, I can say with you:  thank you, Mary, my Mother, for the many graces I obtain through your almighty intercession. Pray for me, o Holy Mother, that I  always have strength sufficient to accept whatever burdens I am asked to bear each day. May I bear them hopefully with a joyful heart, knowing that you, Mother, are with me, encouraging and leading me ever closer to Jesus Your Son, in Whose Name I pray, and Who lives with the Father and the Holy Spirit forever. Amen.
