Prayer for the Nativity of Mary, the Mother of God

On this feast, let call upon the Blessed Virgin as “Cause of our joy”, by praying:

O Virgin Immaculate, thou who by a singular privilege of grace wast preserved from Original Sin, look in pity upon our separated brethren, who are nevertheless thy children, and call them back to the centre of unity. Not a few of them, although separated from the Church, have kept a certain veneration for thee; and do thou, generous as thou art, reward them for it, by obtaining for them the grace of conversion.

Thou wast conqueror of the infernal serpent from the first instant of thy existence; renew even now, for it is now more necessary than ever before, thine ancient triumphs; glorify thy Divine Son, bring back to Him the sheep that have strayed from the one fold and place them once more under the guidance of the universal Shepherd who holds the place of thy Son on earth; let it be thy glory, O Virgin who destroyest all heresies, to restore unity and peace once more to all the Christian people.

Blessed feast to all.

Prayer for a 9/11 Remembrance

ns-de-doloresMost holy Mary, we come to you with sadness in our hearts as we remember those who have gone before us, most especially those who fell victim to the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001.
 
Approaching you with unlimited confidence in the power of your intercession, and urged by the charity of Jesus Christ, we raise our hearts in supplication to you, the compassionate Mother of all believers, in favor of those suffering souls. Make our prayers to be of good effect and obtain, through your motherly intercession, the power to move the Heart of Jesus our Redeemer. Let your incomparable holiness supply the defects of our misery, may your love make good our languid affection, and may your power strengthen our weakness.
 
Grant, O Queen of Heaven, that the ardent desire of the souls of the departed to be admitted to the Beatific Vision may soon be satisfied. Grant that one day, when we are all reunited in heaven, we may be able to rejoice in the possession of God, in the happiness of your presence, in the fellowship of all the Saints, thanking you forever for all the blessings you have obtained for us, O Mother, who art our unfailing comfort. Amen.
 
Three Hail Mary’s
 
V. Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord
R. And let perpetual light shine upon them.
 
V. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
R. Amen.
