Dear Mother and Most Gracious Lady, We love you and we wish to honour you on your feast day. Our parish seeks your heavenly blessing all the year round. Every day we thank you for your promise to help us in our need. We trust in your love that dries our tears and comforts us. Teach us to meet your son Jesus in prayer, in Adoration and in the Holy Mass. Help every member of our parish to build a shrine in our hearts. Make it as beautiful as the one you build on the mount to Tepeyac. A shrine of trust, hope and love of your son Jesus growing stronger each and every day.
Most Gracious Lady, Mother of Our Parish, you have chosen to remain with us by giving us your most wonderful and holy self-image on Juan Diego’s cloak. In our parish image of you – may we feel your loving presence as we look on your face. Like Juan, give us- please- the courage to bring your message of hope to everyone.
Bless our parish, please intercede for the Sick and Housebound, intercede for families, for the Child in the Womb, for those in despair, for the lonely and the dying.
You are our Mother and our inspiration. Hear our prayers and answer favourably our plea for your heavenly help.
