Father of mercy,
give your people help and strength from heaven.
The birth of the Virgin Mary’s Son
was the dawn of our salvation
May this celebration of her birthday
bring us closes to lasting peace.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Gift to the Blessed Mother: To be in the state of grace, to be good souls (soil), so that His words (seed of eternal life) can bring numerous fruits. While we have to accept pain along the way—hope exists, offering a piece of heaven for ourselves and those around us.
