Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.

Remember, most loving Virgin Mary, never was it heard that anyone who turned to you for help was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, though burdened by my sins, I run to your protection for you are my mother. Mother of the Word of God, do not despise my words of pleading but be merciful and hear my prayer. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
