Prayer to the Queen of Peace
Mary, Mother of God and Our Mother, Queen of Peace!
You came to us to lead us to God.
Obtain for us the grace not only to say:
"Be it done to me according to Your will!", but to live it, as You did.
Into Your hands we put our hands, so that You may lead us to Him amidst these
afflictions and woes. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Creed, 7 Our Father's, 7 Hail Mary's, 7 Glory Be's...
Veni Creator Spiritus - Come Holy Spirit
Come Holy Spirit, Creator, come
best gift of God above,
the living spring, the living fire,
sweet unction and true love.
Thou Who are called the Paraclete,
from Thy bright heavenly throne,
come, take possession of our souls,
and make them all Thine own.
Thou who are sevenfold in Thy grace,
finger of God's right hand,
His promise, teaching little ones
to speak and understand.
O guide our minds with Thy blest light,
with love our hearts inflame;
and with Thy strength, which never decays,
confirm our mortal frame.
Far from us drive our deadly foe,
true peace unto us bring,
and through all perils lead us safe
beneath Thy sacred wing.
Through Thee may we the Father know,
through Thee the eternal Son,
and Thee the Spirit of them both,
thrice-blessed Three in One.
All glory to the Father be,
with his co-equal Son:
the same to Thee, great Paraclete,
while endless ages run. Amen.
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful, and enkindle in them the fire of
- Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created.
- And You shall renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray: God, who taught the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy
Spirit, grant that by the gift of the same Spirit we may be always truly wise
and ever rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
The Glorious Mysteries
Texts for Meditation
Jesus said to his disciples: "Amen, amen I say to you, whoever believes in me will do the works that I do, and will do greater ones than these, because I am going to
the Father. And whatever you ask in my name, I will do, so that the Father may
be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything of me in my name, I will do it."
"Dear children! Today I am with you in a special way and I bring you my motherly
blessing of peace. I pray for you and I intercede for you before God, so that
you may comprehend that each of you is a carrier of peace. You cannot have peace
if your heart is not at peace with God. That is why, little children, pray,
pray, pray, because prayer is the foundation of your peace. Open your heart and
give time to God so that He will be your friend. When true friendship with God
is realized, no storm can destroy it. Thank you for having responded to my
call." (Message, June 25, 1997)
"If you knew the gift of God!" The wonder of prayer is revealed beside the well
where we come seeking water: there, Christ comes to meet every human being. It
is he who first seeks us and asks us for a drink. Jesus thirsts; his asking
arises from the depths of God's desire for us. Whether we realize it or not,
prayer is the encounter of God's thirst with ours. God thirsts that we may
thirst for him. "You would have asked him, and he would have given you living
water." Paradoxically our prayer of petition is a response to the plea of the
living God: "They have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters, and hewn out
cisterns for themselves, broken cisterns that can hold no water!" Prayer is the
response of faith to the free promise of salvation and also a response of love
to the thirst of the only Son of God. (2560 2561)

That we may be made worthy of
the promises of Christ!
Let us pray: Pour forth, we beseech you, O
Lord, your grace into our hearts, that we, to whom the Incarnation of Christ, your Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by his passion and cross be brought to the glory of his Resurrection, through Christ, our Lord.
We thank You, O Father, for the gift of prayer which allows us to touch
Your heart; prayer in which You give Yourself entirely to us and in which You
teach us to give ourselves entirely to You. We pray today for all intentions of
the Queen of Peace and for all that is necessary so that the whole world,
through Mary, may enter into Your glory, the glory of the Most Holy Trinity.
