Queen of the World Day 5 - Catholic Action For Faith and Family

Day Five – August 21, Feast Day of Our Lady of Knock 

Today, 133 years ago, was the incredible apparition of Our Lady of Knock.  Let us praise her on this glorious feast by praying part of an Ancient Irish Litany of Mary:

Great Mary,

Greatest of Marys,

Mother of Eternal Glory,

Mother of the Golden Light,

Honor of the Sky,

Temple of the Divinity,

Fountain of the Gardens,

Serene as the Moon,

Bright as the Sun,

Garden Enclosed,

Temple of the Living God,

Light of Nazareth,

Beauty of the World,

Queen of Life,

Ladder of Heaven,

Mother of God.

       Pray for us. 

Now let us continue to seek Our Lady’s intercession, for our own needs and especially for Cardinal Burke to be restored to good health and to thank her for favors granted:

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Give praise to the Father Almighty, To His Son, Jesus Christ the Lord, To the Spirit who lives in our hearts, Both now and forever Amen.

Our Lady of Knock, Queen of Ireland, you gave hope to your people in a time of distress, and comforted them in sorrow. You have inspired countless pilgrims to pray with confidence to your divine Son, remembering His promise, "Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find."

Help me to remember that we are all pilgrims on the road to heaven. Fill me with love and concern for my brothers and sisters in Christ, especially those who live with me. Comfort me when I am sick, lonely or depressed. Teach me how to take part ever more reverently in the Holy Mass. Give me a greater love of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Pray for me now, and at the hour of my death. Amen.

Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world; Have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world; Have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world; Grant us peace.

St. Joseph, chosen by God to be the Husband of Mary, the Protector of the Holy Family, the Guardian of the Church, protect all families in their work and recreation and guard us on our journey through life.

Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world; Have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world; Have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world; Grant us peace.

St John, beloved disciple of the Lord, faithful priest, teacher of the Word of God. Help us to hunger for the Word, be loyal to the Mass and to love one another.

Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world; Have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world; Have mercy on us.
