The petitions are read before Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, Our Lady’s image and the community.
The very great number of petitions and thanksgivings which came in over the last week. Keep it up! Remember that only good can come of it. No mother in the world desires to receive a letter from her child so much as Our Mother of Perpetual Succour. Write with humility and constancy, and she cannot fail to hear your pleas.
Remember O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known,
that anyone who fled to Thy protection,
implored Thine aid or sought Thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence I fly to Thee, O Virgin of virgins my Mother.
To Thee I come before Thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate despise not my petitions,
But in Thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen
