Journeying in the Faith – Mary our Mother

Mary, our Mother

 Queen of Peace,

Pray for us!

Mother of mercy and of hope,

Obtain for the men and women of the third millennium the precious gift of peace;

Peace in heart and families,

In communities among peoples;

Peace above all for those nations

Where people fight and die every day.

Obtain that every human belong of every race and culture

May encounter and accept Jesus,

Who came down to earth to give “his” peace to us.

 O Mary, Queen of Peace,

Give us Christ,

The world’s true Peace!

Pope John Paul ll

This October we are learning the Angelus,

which we will say at lunchtime.

The Angelus

 V. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.

R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.

Hail Mary, …

R. Be it done unto me according to thy word.

Hail Mary, …

V. And the Word was made Flesh.

R. And dwelt among us.

Hail Mary, …

V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.

R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of

Christ.

Let us pray:

Pour forth, we beseech thee, O Lord, thy grace into

our hearts, that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ

thy son was made known by the message of an

angel, may by His passion and cross be brought to

the glory of his resurrection. Through the same

Christ our Lord.

Amen.

V. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy

Spirit.

R. As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be

world without end, Amen

Marian Prayer of St Philip Neri

 Mary, I love you.

Mary, make me live in God,

With God, and for God.

Draw me after you holy mother.

O Mary, may your children persevere in loving you.

Mary, holy mother of God,

Be our helper.

Come to our aid, O Mary,

Pray to Jesus for me.

Amen.
