O Mary teach us to accept God’s will, in the spirit of the Annunciation.
Visit us in our need as you visited Elizabeth.
Bring us forth in grace as you brought forth Jesus in the flesh.
Present us in the temple of the Father and help us find Jesus in the midst of us.
We thank you, that by Baptism, we are sons and daughters of the heavenly Father.
We rejoice to be invited to the Wedding Feast of the Lamb.
May we proclaim the Kingdom of God in our lives.
May we reflect something of the transfigured glory of Jesus, your Son and be nourished by his body and blood in the Blessed Eucharist.
Obtain for us O Blessed Mother, the courage to be one with Jesus in his agony, and to say: “Father, your will be done.”
Grant that through his wounds we may be healed.
Teach us the meekness of our King crowned with thorns.
Help us carry our cross and know “the fellowship of his sufferings on Calvary.”
May we know too, the “power of his resurrection” and ascend to that home prepared for us.
Pray for us, dear Mother, that we may share in the out-pouring of the Holy Spirit, and after this our exile, rejoice in the glory of your assumption and coronation in heaven.
