Prayer of the Month

April 2017

Mary Most Holy, the Mother of our Saviour, you had the courage to embrace the ideal of a life that is fully human and happy to spend itself in love. You placed your youth and enthusiasm in God’s hands. Through your intercession, may we be granted that same openness of heart, that same readiness to respond, “Here I am”, to the Lord’s call, and that same joy in setting out, like you, to proclaim him to the whole world.
