Mother Mary,
You are the Refuge of sinners,
the Hope of the hopeless,
the Consoler of the afflicted,
and the Comforter of the dying.
With faith in your intercession,
we pray for the Church,
for our family and friends,
for the poor and abandoned,
and all the dying.
Mary, Help of Christians, pray for us!
May we attain the boundless joy
of being forever with our Father in heaven. 


Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us! 
Live Jesus in our Hearts – Forever
