our brother and our Lord,
you have come to save us
loves us with a deep and unending love.
You have given us Mary, your mother,
to be our mother too,
and invite us to follow her example.
On earth she was a woman
to God's will,
always ready to serve in any way.
she continues to pray for us,
so that we may serve God
faithfully in our daily living.
help us to ponder in our hearts
over the many ways you show your love in our lives,
and lead us to walk with your mother
as we follow you each day.
Jesus, we praise you,
for you are our Lord
and our God
for ever and ever.

to honour our father and mother,
have compassion in Thy mercy,
