to our Blessed Mother
We kneel before
you, as you yourself sit at the throne room of God, beside our Lord and
Savior Jesus Christ, your Son. You more than anyone else embody the
pure love for our Lord Jesus that we all desire to have, as you him in
your womb, gave birth to him, raised him, suffered with him
through the cross, and finally witnessed his resurrection. You are the
one whose soul perfectly proclaims the greatness of the Lord, whose
spirit perfectly rejoices in God our Savior. You are the one we and all
ages will call blessed.
You are the highly favored one, and the Lord is truly with you. We thus
look to you to be our mediatrix, as we continue on our journey in the
world, proclaiming your Son Jesus and bringing his good news of
salvation to all. We recognize our weakness and sinfulness, and that
apart from the power of God’s Spirit we can do nothing.
Dear Mother Mary, you are our inspiration for the strengthening of
families and the promotion of the culture of life. Pray and intercede
for us always, that we may remain faithful to our covenant, steadfast
in our work, persevering despite trials and crosses, and always mindful
of the call to holiness and discipleship. You who are holy and you who
are the most faithful disciple of our Lord Jesus Christ, keep us in
your loving embrace always.
We consecrate ourselves, our families and our work to you. Bless us,
dear Mother, and journey with us, as we continue to journey with your
beloved Son Jesus. You are our mother, and we are your children, now
and forever. Amen.
