Mary Help of Christians.jpg

Most Holy and
Immaculate Virgin, Help of Christians, we place ourselves under your motherly
protection. Throughout the Church’s history you have helped Christians in times
of trial, temptation and danger. Time and time again, you have proven to be the
Refuge of sinners, the Hope of the hopeless, the Consoler of the afflicted, and
the Comforter of the dying. We promise to be faithful disciples of Jesus
Christ, your Son, to proclaim His Good News of God’s love for all people, and
to work for peace and justice in our world. With faith in your intercession, we
pray for the Church, for our family and friends, for the poor and abandoned,
and all the dying.

Grant, O Mary, Help of Christians, the graces of which we
stand in need. (mention your intentions. May we serve Jesus with fidelity and
love until death. Help us and our loved ones to attain the boundless joy of
being forever with our Father in heaven. Amen.

Mary, Help of
Christians, pray for us!
