Holy Name of Mary
Today we celebrate the Holy Name of Mary.
This day is the patronal feast of all members of the Marianist Family.
It is in the name of Mary that all members of the Marianist Family offer their ministry to the people of God. It is Mary, the woman of faith, who is our model for all we do as members of the Church community.
Let us pray:
Lord, Our God,
when your son was dying on the cross,
He gave us as our mother,
the one he had chosen to be his own mother,
the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Grant that we who call upon
the holy name of Mary,
Our mother, with confidence in her protection
may receive the strength and comfort in all our needs.
May the Father and the Son
and the Holy Spirit be glorified
in all places through the Immaculate Virgin Mary.
