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.
Prayer to Blessed Mary of Jesus the Good Shepherd
(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.
Lord, have mercy on us! Christ, have mercy on us! Lord, have mercy on us!
Christ, hear us! Christ, graciously hear us!
Father, the Creator, have mercy on us,
Son, the Redeemer, have mercy on us,
Holy Spirit, the Consecrator, have mercy on us,
Jesus, the Good Shepherd, have mercy on us,
Blessed Gift of the Church for the family, pray for us,
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, spare us, o Lord.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, graciously hear us, o Lord.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
Let us pray:God, You gifted blessed Mary of Jesus the Good Shepherd with the special charism of life according to example of the Holy Family of Nazareth, grant us this grace, so that we, following her example, may know how to prompt in Christian families the desire of a life worthy of their vocation, for Your greater glory and for the spreading of Your Kingdom on earth. Through Christ, our Lord.
