Mary, Mother of God
Oh Mary, of all women, you are the chosen one. Chosen by the Father to be the Mother of God. How blessed are you Virgin Mary, for you carried within you the Lord, the creator of the world. In fullness of His grace the Word was made man.
Oh Mary, Mother meek and mild, may your response of a humble heart draw the Holy Spirit to rest on all your children. Gate of heaven, vessel of the Incarnate Word, may your prayers, the gift of a mother's love, be your children's joy through all the ages. May we always profit by your prayers, for you brought us life and salvation through your Son, Jesus Christ.
Son of the Virgin Mary, have mercy on us.
In your mercy grant that we may become more like you. You made yourself a citizen of our earthly city, grant that we may become citizens of our true homeland, your kingdom in heaven.
