Pope Francis Prayer to Protect the World
O Mary, you always shine on our path as a sign
of salvation and of hope. We entrust ourselves to you,
Health of the Sick, who at the cross took part in
Jesus' pain, keeping your faith firm. You,
Salvation of the Faithful, know what we need,
and we are sure you will provide so that,
as in Cana of Galilee, we may return to joy
and to feasting after this time of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform
to the will of the Father and to do as we are
told by Jesus, who has taken upon himself
our sufferings and carried our sorrows to lead us,
through the cross, to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.
Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God.
Do not disdain the entreaties of we who are in trial,
abut deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for us.
