O Most Holy Virgin Mary, Mother of God and my Mother, we give you thanks for your maternal protection and intercession for all those who turn to you;
We implore you, Mary our Mother of faith, to walk along with us on the path of righteousness for all of our lives.
Under your maternal love, grant us our petition and protect us from sickness, fear, and especially from sin which is the greatest evil.
O Mary, My Mother, I am blessed with your love in my life and even more in death and look forward to the greater Kingdom of your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen
