Prayer to St. Mary

Holy Mary,
mother, guide and Lady
of our brother St. Peregrine,
like him we humbly come before you.

Virgin of the annunciation,
woman of the new covenant:
help young people to discover and carry out
God’s plans far them;
support them all in their commitment
to act always according to God’s will.

Queen of mercy,
protect our families,
lift up the oppressed,
çonsole the afflicted,
help the needy.

Mother and disciple of the Crucified Jesus,
our sister on the road of faith:
support your children in the trials of life,
comfort them in their suffering and sickness,
be with them at their last hour.

Virgin assumed into heaven,
first of the saved:
accompany us on our daily journey
towards the new heaven and the new earth,
where there will be no more sorrow,
no more tears,
no more anxiety,
where God, the eternal source of peace and joy,
will be all in all
forever and ever.

Amen.
