May 22, 2013: The Month of Mary

~ by Sr. Marie Rene, S.S.J.


With the month of May, the month of Mary, swiftly passing us, I want to share with you a prayer to Our Holy Mother. To me, every day belongs to Mary!

Mary My Advocate
Holy Mary, Virgin, Mother of God,
I choose you this day
To be my Queen, my Patroness,
And my Advocate.
And I firmly resolve
Never to leave you,
And never to say anything against you,
Nor permit others to do anything against your honor.
Receive me then I beg you for your servant forever.
Helm me in my every action,
And abandon me not at the hour of my death.
~St. John Berchmans, S.J.
