''When we encounter the Cross, we turn to Mary: Give us the strength, Mary our Mother, to accept and embrace the Cross!''
''We do not become Christians by ourselves. Faith is above all a gift from God which is given to us in and through the Church.''
We come to you, most holy Virgin. We are children of England, your dowry. Keep us faithful to the Gospel of Jesus your Son. Keep us in the unity of the Catholic faith and the power of hope.
Mother of love, protect all the families of England. Help them to stay together. Give them the happiness of loving and passing on life.
You are the Mother of Christ, our Saviour. Open our hearts to people who are suffering. May each of us offer signs of friendship and welcome to people who are less well off than us.
Faithful Virgin, help us in our lives. Help us to choose the way in life that Jesus wants us to follow. May we face the problems of life today, together with people of other Churches and religions.
You praised the great things done by the Lord. You sang about how God kept his promises to the people of Israel. We bless you because you believed in the Word of God and in his Love which lasts for ever and ever.
Our Lady of Walsingham, pray for us.
A Catholic eager to discuss the truth about Catholic Christianity.
