Prayer To Our Lady of Guadalupe
"Mother of Mercy, teacher of hidden and silent sacrifice, to You, who come to meet us, we sinners consecrate all our being and all our love on this day. We also consecrate our lives, our work, our joys, our infirmities and our sorrows to you.
Grant peace, justice and prosperity to our peoples, for we confide all we have and all we are to your care, Our Lady and Our Mother. We will to be completely yours and to follow with You the road of full fidelity to Jesus Christ in His Church. Hold us always lovingly by the hand.
Virgin of Guadalupe, Mother of the Americas, we pray to You for all the bishops, that they may guide the faithful along the paths of an intense Christian life, of love and humble service to God and souls.
See how great the harvest is and intercede with the Lord so that He will infuse hunger for holiness into the whole People of God and grant abundant priestly and religious vocations, strong in faith, zealous dispensers of the mysteries of God.
Grant our homes the grace to love and respect life as it begins with the same love whereby You conceived the life of the Son of God in Your womb.
Virgin Saint Mary, Mother of Beautiful Love, protect our families so that they may always remain united and bless the education of our children.
So, Mother Most Holy, with the Peace of God in our consciences, with our hearts free of malice and hate, we shall be able to bring true joy and true peace to all, which come from Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever. Amen"
Pope John Paul II
