through the intercession of Blessed Mary of Jesus the Good Shepherd

Prayer to Obtain Graces

FRANCES SIEDLISKA

O God, by the light of the example of Blessed Mary of Jesus the Good Shepherd, by the warmth of her love for you, and by the generosity of her charity in the service of others, may she be an inspiration to us in all that we do. For your greater glory and for our spiritual benefit, we ask you to grant the grace we need through her intercession.

Amen.

Prayer to Blessed Mary of Jesus the Good Shepherd

O dear Mother Foundress, you who are so close to the divine heart of Jesus, look down upon this earth and see how one of your children pleads with you for this favor… Mother, obtain it for me from his divine heart. How can he refuse you anything now when you plead for favors for your children? Intercede for me, O Mother, with his sacred Heart.

(Say 9 Hail Mary’s, and 9 times “Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on me.”)

Prayer of Blessed Mary of Jesus the Good Shepherd

O Lord, grant that we not only bear the name but become in truth the daughters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, so that the kingdom of divine love grow and flourish among us. Grant us, O Lord, the grace to have always before our eyes your holy life, the life of your immaculate mother and that of St. Joseph in Nazareth so that we may live this true spirit and be totally animated with it. I, your unworthy servant, O Lord, am asking this for myself and for all my sisters so that we will always be pleasing to you and be children of your divine love. Amen.
