May the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit be glorified in all places through the Immaculate Virgin Mary.
This prayer serves as a "spiritual rendezvous" with the Marianist Family around the world as we gather to recall the hour when Jesus, on Calvary, gave us Mary as our Mother.
Lord Jesus, we gather in spirit at the foot of the cross with your Mother and the disciple whom you loved. We ask your pardon for our sins which are the cause of your death. We thank you for remembering us in that hour of salvation and for giving us Mary as our Mother. Holy Virgin, take us under your protection and open us to the action of the Holy Spirit. Saint John, obtain for us the grace of taking Mary into our life, as you did, and of assisting her in her mission. May the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit be glorified in all places through the Immaculate Virgin Mary.
O Lord, You are constantly at work in your Church and, through individuals and communities, You manifest Your spirit for the good of your people. In a special way You bestowed your spirit on your Servant, Blessed William Joseph Chaminade so that he might live fully according to the Gospel and with love devote himself to your saving work. You have inspired communities of men and women to follow his example by consecrating themselves to You to serve the Church under the leadership of Mary. We now pray to You to give us visible signs of your grace and holiness in his life by granting us the special favors we ask through his intercession. May the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit be glorified in all places through the Immaculate Virgin Mary. Amen.
