Under your protection, O Mary, we ask your help at this time. 
Under your protection, O Blessed Virgin, we are confident in times of stress. 
Under your protection, O Queen of heaven, we on earth feel blessed. 
Under your protection, O Mother of Jesus, we place our families in your gentle hand. 
Under your protection, O Mother of Christians, we feel safe and secure. 
Under your protection, O Mother of the healing Jesus, we pray for the compassion of your Son. 
 
Amen.
