O Mother of Jesus,
And our mother too,
We come to you for help
As we always do.

 But especially now
With all this suffering and pain,
And confusion and uncertainty,
All the violence…It’s insane!

 Our world has become dark
And bereft of light!
We beg you, Mother Mary,
Bring us into the light!

Change our hearts, Mary.
Change our minds.
Change our behavior.
Make us compassion and kind.

 Bring us to your Son, Jesus.
Before Him may we kneel with humility
And beg for forgiveness
For our sins and those of humanity!

 O Queen of Heaven,
O Queen of Earth,
We look to you with hope
For a new birth.

 May we be reborn in the Holy Spirit
And walk in the ways of God
Because without your help, Mary,
We may become a lost cause!

 We must pray the Rosary more.
We must read God’s word each day.
We must trust in Divine Providence.
There is no other way!

Holy Mary, Mother of God, Pray for us sinners,
Now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
