Invocation to Mary, Mother of the Church

O Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church,
we entrust to you the entire Church.

Remember all your sons and daughters;
make their prayer effective before God;
preserve them solid in faith;
strengthen their hope and increase their charity.

We entrust to your Immaculate Heart the whole human race:
Lead them all to know the one true Savior, Christ Jesus.

Free them from the punishment of sin.
Grant the whole world true and lasting peace,
in justice, in freedom and in love.

And make the whole Church rise to the God of mercies
a hymn of joy, thanksgiving and rejoicing,
for the wonders the Lord has worked through you,
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
