Mary, Mother of the Church
Father of mercies,
whose only Son,
hanging on the cross,
gave his Virgin Mother Mary
to be our Mother also.
Grant, we beseech thee,
that under her loving care,
her children may grow daily in holiness,
to the end that all mankind may see in thy Church
the mother of all nations.
Through the same Jesus Christ our Lord,
who liveth and reigneth with thee,
in the unity of the Holy Ghost,
one God, world without end. Amen.
