Lady of All Nations, Advocate, Mediatrix and Co-Redemptrix
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, send your Spirit over the earth. Let the Holy Spirit live in the hearts of all nations, that they may be preserved from degeneration, disaster and war. May the Lady of All Nations, the Blessed Virgin Mary, be our Advocate. Amen.
Hail, Holy Queen, Our Life, our sweetness, and our hope, to thee do we cry poor banished children of Eve, to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in the vale of tears. Turn then most gracious Advocate thine eyes of mercy towards us, that after this our exile thou might show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, o loving, o most sweet Virgin Mary. - Advocate
O Lord Jesus Christ, our mediator with the Father, who has been pleased to appoint the most blessed Virgin Mary your Mother to be our Mother also and our mediatrix with you, mercifully grant that whoever comes to you seeking your favors may rejoice to receive all of them through her. Amen. - Mediatrix
Behold the handmaid of the Lord, let it be done to me according to your word.
A sword will pierce your heart. - Co-Redemptrix
Dear Mother Mary, thank you for saving the life of Pope John Paul II and for protecting Pope Benedict XVI on his apostolic journey to your blessed homeland.
