Mother of mothers, you courageously accepted
motherhood in troubled times,
Pray for All Mothers.
Who possesses in incomprehensible abundance
all that is perfect and worthy of love,
kindle in my heart
the pure fire of Your love,
so that I may love nothing
but You or in You until,
being entirely consumed
by holy love of You,
Mary, Virgin, Mother of God,
Martyr of love and sorrow,
because you witnessed
the pains and torments of Jesus,
I ask you to save me, a sinner.
Let your intercession be forever
interposed with the Father
and the Son for me,
Dear God, we thank You for the love
and many blessings You give Us.
May we cherish the gift of each other.
Help us to show our gratitude
by loving each other as You love us
and sharing that love with others,
especially those who have less in life.
St. Joseph be always our protector.
That your internal spirit of peace,
silence, honest work, and prayer
in the service of the Church
give us life and happiness
in union with your blessed Spouse,
our Sweet and Immaculate Mother
help me to keep to my purpose of living
as a faithful disciple of Jesus,
for the building up of the Christian society
and the joy of the holy Catholic Church.
I greet you, Mother,
morning and evening;
I pray to you as I go on my way;
O most holy Heart of Jesus,
fountain of every blessing,
I adore You, I love You,
and with a lively sorrow for my sins,
I offer You this poor heart of mine.
Make me humble, patient, pure,
and wholly obedient to Your will.
Grant, good Jesus,
Blessed Virgin Mary, you are the mother
and queen of every Christian family.
When you conceived and gave birth to Jesus,
human motherhood reached its greatest achievement.
From the time of the Annunciation
you were the living chalice of the Son of God made man.
Grant, we beseech You
O Lord Jesus Christ,
that now, and at the hour of our death,
the Blessed Mary, ever Virgin,
Your Mother, may intercede for us,
through whose most holy soul
a sword passed in the hour of Your Passion:
through Your, Jesus Christ,
Immaculate Mother of God,
we know that God's commandment of love
and our vocation to follow Jesus Christ
impels us to cooperate in the mission of the Church.
Realizing our own weakness,
we entrust the renewal of our personal lives
May Thursday be a hope filled day,
That floods my fears with light,
A day that quiets all anxious thoughts
As I encounter Christ.
Let Thursday always prompt my heart
To stop and find Your peace,
And live upon the truth You give
My eyes to You I lift.
O Virgin, fair as the moon,
delight of the angels and saints in heaven,
grant that we may become like you
and that our souls may receive a ray of your beauty,
which does not decline with the years
but shines forth into eternity.
O Mary, sun of heaven,
O Mary, you are praying for us,
you are always praying for us.
We know it, we feel it.
Oh what joy and truth,
what sublime glory,
in this heavenly and human interchange of sentiments,
words and actions,
which the rosary always brings us:
O God, Creator of the universe,
who extends your paternal concern over every creature
and guides the events of history to the goal of salvation,
we acknowledge Your fatherly love
when You break the resistance of mankind and,
