rayer to Mary Immaculate
O Blessed Mother,
O Mary, Immaculate Heart
that watches over this troubled world
with such infinite patience,
with such steadfast love,
with such kindness and care,
we don't deserve such a mother as you,
but thank you for being willing to share
the love of your son
with each and every one of us.
Thank you for treating us
as your own little children -
how often have you searched and waited for us
like you did when the child Jesus
stayed behind at the Temple.
When we hurt,
thank you for covering us with your mantle,
giving us someone to hug,
a lap to cry on.
Thank you for all the times you have dried our eyes.
And thank your Son
for the great mercy of sharing you with us.
O I pray, dearest Mary, sweet mother,
that every day I can grow a little bit more like you.
