Today we remember Mary as the Help of Christians.
This is the anniversary day of the foundation of the Daughters of Mary Immaculate (Marianist Sisters) in 1816. It is also the anniversary day in 1819 when the Vatican gave spiritual privileges to both the Society of Mary and the Daughters of Mary Immaculate (Marianist Sisters).
Let us pray: Mary, daughter of Wisdom we, your family, desire to be your living presence in the world today. Form us to be the faithful sons and daughters of your son, our brother, Jesus. Grant that we may always wholeheartedly respond to the graces sent to us by God. May the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit be glorified in all places through the Immaculate Virgin Mary. Amen.
