Mary, Mother of All the World’s Children
O good and gentle Mother wrap us in your mantle of love.
Protect us this day from all that would separate us from you and your precious Son.
Teach us to love as you do, to forgive as Jesus does, and to reach out to others in need, reflecting the image of our Divine Creator.
Keep us ever faithful and true as we seek to enhance the reign of God on earth. Thank you for loving us, dearest Mother.
May the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit be glorified in all places through the Immaculate Virgin Mary. Amen
The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
And she conceived of the Holy Spirit
Behold the handmaid of the Lord
Be it done to me according to your word.
And the word was made flesh
And dwelt among us.
Pray for us, O’ Holy Mother of God.
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray:
Pour forth, we beseech you, O Lord, your grace into our hearts; that as we have known the incarnation of Christ your Son by the message of an angel, so by his passion and cross, may we be brought to the glory of his resurrection. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen
Three O’Clock Prayer
Lord Jesus, we gather in spirit at the foot of the Cross with your Mother and the disciple whom you loved.
We ask your pardon for our sins which are the cause of your death.
We thank you for remembering us in that hour of salvation and for giving us Mary as our Mother.
Holy Virgin, take us under your protection and open us to the action of the Holy Spirit.
Saint John, obtain for us the grace of taking Mary into our life, as you did, and of assisting her in her mission. Amen.
May the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit be glorified in all places through the Immaculate Virgin Mary.
Our Lady of Divine Providence, Pray for us.
St. Martin de Porres, Pray for us.
Blessed William Joseph Chaminade, Pray for us.

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
