Immaculate Heart of Mary
help us to conquer the menace of evil
which so easily takes root in the hearts of the people of today,
and whose immeasurable effects
already weigh down upon our modern world
and seem to block the paths toward the future.
From famine and war, deliver us.
From sins against human life deliver us.
From hatred and from the demeaning of the dignity
of the children of God, deliver us.
From every kind of injustice in the life of society, deliver us.
From the loss of awareness of good and evil, deliver us.
From sins against the Holy Spirit, deliver us.
Accept our pleas, O Mother, and help us overcome our sins.
