which your Son taught and exemplified.
We ask your maternal care for our Holy Father
who works to reconcile the nations in peace.
We seek your guidance for our Head of Stater
and other leaders as they strive for world peace.
Glorious Queen of peace,

and concord throughout the world.

watch over us and protect us
with your motherly love.
