Day Two – Our Lady of Lourdes
O Mother most pure and chaste, who loves your children so much, you appeared to St. Bernadette with a rosary dangling from your right arm. You desired that we grasp the importance of prayer, teaching us that reciting your Most Holy Rosary is so crucial in aiding us, to lead our lives as your faithful sons and daughters. Practicing acts of penance in reparation, not only for our sins, but the sins of others, as well as being humble, is what you also asked of us. Please guide me to be humble and care for the needs of those around me.
Our Lady of Lourdes, have pity of me, all of my loved ones, as well as all those that I pray for and most especially for Cardinal Burke. I beg you for the graces that we need whenever we experience doubts about our faith, whenever we feel like we want to give up, when temptations abound. Keep us under your mantle, O Dearest Virgin Mary and protect us from the snares of Satan.
Immaculate Mother, so full of grace, goodness and love, you are the Mother of Mercy, who shields us from the darts of the evil one, you have dispensed so many graces to those who have invoked you, under the title of Our Lady of Lourdes. It is through your intercession that many thousands have been healed. I approach you now, Queen of Heaven, to take my most urgent petitions to Jesus, your Son, who will not refuse anything that you will ask of Him: (mention all of your intentions, especially for the needs of Cardinal Burke, as well as for his good health).
O Mary, Health of the Sick, I am forever grateful for all the graces that you have granted me and my loved ones. May I always endeavor to imitate your virtues, so that I may be with you, forever in heaven. AMEN.
