Our Lady
of Perpetual

to Christians

O Mother of Perpetual Help, grant that we may ever invoke thy most powerful name, which is the safeguard of the living and the salvation of the dying. O Purest Mary, O Sweetest Mary, let thy name henceforth be ever on our lips. Delay not, O Blessed Lady, to help us and especially thoes persucuted christians in dire need, whenever we call on thee, for, in all our needs, in all our temptations we shall never cease to call on thee, ever repeating thy sacred name, Mary, Mary.

modified for persucuted christians.

O what consolation, what sweetness, what confidence, what emotion fill my soul when I pronounce thy sacred name, or even only think of thee. I thank God for having given thee, for my good, so sweet, so powerful, so lovely a name. But I will not be content with merely pronouncing thy name: let my love for thee prompt me ever to hail thee, Mother of Perpetual Help.
