Many of your parish staff members recently consecrated their lives to Jesus through Mary, using 33 Days to Morning Glory by Fr. Michael Gaitley as a preparation guide. Fr. Anthony plans to offer this same opportunity to the parish at large in the upcoming year. We highly recommend it! In the meantime, here’s a Marian prayer I wrote in the chapel. It’s meant to be prayed in two directions – all the blue words first, and then starting over with the blue and rose together. I pray it blesses you somehow.
Hail Mary True victor. Beloved child. Spouse and mother of God.
Full of Grace Filled. Overflowing with grace. Amazing.
Pray for us sinners now Rescue us each moment.
And at the hour of death Sweeten my plea. Welcome me home.
Holy Mary Bitter no more – transformed is the world!
Theotokos God bearer. Light holder. Love bringer.
O favored one You are chosen. You chose well.
Blessed among women Make us more like you.
Spouse of God Till death do you part. No more death. No parting.
One with Him Oh, what intimacy. To know and be known.
O Immaculata! Conceived without sin. Pure. Holy. Perfect.
Salve Regina Our queen. Our beauty. Jewel of Heaven.
O my heart It beats with His rhythms. How else could it?
Heavenly help Go to the throne for me! Tell Him I cry out!
Star of the sea Bringer of running waters and my solace.
Untyer of knots Solver of problems because you trust fully.
Sayer of yesses How many yesses? How many each day?
Obedient virgin Simple. Free. Content. Quiet.
Mother of the Church My mother. Our mother. Giver of The Life.
This is my body He is OF your body. May He be of mine.
Given up for you Do I give up? Again and again?
Eve’s recovery My only redemption starts with your yes.
Our great hope Because of Him – what joy for a mother!
My soul proclaims His greatness too! Alleluia.
Rejoicing in God our Savior How great, how perfect, how undeserved a savior.
I would be a lowly handmaid Small and listening. Waiting. Pondering.
Here I am Take me take me take me take me take me
Send me Use me. Love me. Empty me. Fill me.
