Mary my Mother of Perpetual Help, with trust in you as my spiritual mother in the family of Christ Jesus, I implore your maternal intercession, inspired me by the example of your life and faith in the name of Jesus. I think of you at that moment when, full of faith and trust, you accepted God’s call to be the mother of His Son. Help me, your child, to accept with joy my own calling in life in the name of Jesus. When you learned that your cousin Elizabeth was in need you immediately went to serve her and offer your help. Help me, like you, to be concerned for others in the name of Jesus. I think of you, Mother, at the foot of the Cross. Your heart must have bled to see your Son in agony. But your joy was great when He rose from the dead, victorious over the powers of evil. Mother of Sorrows, help me through the trials and disappointments of life. Help me not to lose heart. May I share with you and your Son the joy of having courageously faced all the challenges of life in the name of Jesus Amen.
