Almighty God, during this Advent season,
kindle in every heart the true love of peace,
and guide with Your eternal wisdom
those who take counsel for the nations of the earth,

until the earth is filled with Your love;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
 who lives and reigns with You, in the unity
of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

Amen.

O Jesus, Divine Master,
I thank and bless Your most merciful Heart
for having given us Mary most holy as our Mother,
Teacher and Queen.
From the cross You placed us all in her hands.
You gave her a great heart,
much wisdom and immense power.
May all mankind know her, pray to her!
May all permit themselves to be led by her to You,
the Savior of mankind!
I placed myself in her hands,
as You placed Yourself.
With this Mother I want to live now,
in the hour of my death,
and for all eternity.

Amen.

who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

in His eternal and glorious kingdom; where
He lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

except through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ our Savior;

one God, for ever and ever.
