Mary, you are Mother of Christ, and Mother of the Church. You aided the beginnings of the Church by your prayer. You had complete adherence to the Father’s will, to His Son’s redemptive work and to every prompting of the Holy Spirit and you are the Church’s model of faith and charity.
We beg you to implore on our behalf with God the Father, with your Son Jesus Christ, and with the Holy Spirit to remove the threat of war by softening men’s hearts and by helping all people to live in charity and in love. Let violence be vanquished and peace prevail.
Today sweet Mother, we bring you all those who come to the aid of victims of war. Please intercede with the Blessed Trinity on their behalf. Protect the many volunteers, nurses and doctors who work tediously to save lives. May they be blessed for their wonderful generosity. Guide their every step and protect them from the evil that surrounds them. Let their goodness be a light amid the gloom and darkness and may they be a source of comfort and hope to those they meet.
Gentle Mother, hear our prayers and take them to our God in Heaven. May God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit be worshiped and praised. We offer God our thanksgiving prayer of adoration and let only his will be done in us and in all His creatures.
