MAY 24: MARY, HELP OF CHRISTIANS, PRAY FOR US! Prayer of St. John Bosco.


MAY 24: MARY, HELP OF CHRISTIANS.
PRAYER OF ST. JOHN BOSCO.

Dear brethren in Christ, below you have St. John Bosco’s prayer to Mother Mary, Help of Christians. Happy Feast Day to all, especially to our Salesian brethren!

Most Holy Virgin Mary, Help of Christians,
how sweet it is to come to your feet
imploring your perpetual help.

If earthly mothers cease not
to remember their children,
how can you, the most loving
of all mothers forget me?

Grant then to me, I implore you,
your perpetual help in all my necessities,
in every sorrow, and especially in all my temptations.

I ask for your unceasing help
for all who are now suffering.
Help the weak,
cure the sick,
convert sinners.

Grant through your intercessions
many vocations to the religious life.

Obtain for us, O Mary, Help of Christians,
that having invoked you on earth
we may love and eternally thank you in heaven.
– St. John Bosco

Mother, Help of Christians, pray for us, especially for those who are in most need!
