We turn in all our needs to Christ’s blessed Mother, Mary,
because we know that our Lord,
as her obedient and loving Son,
can refuse her nothing.
Hence, we turn with confidence to our blessed Lady
as “comforter of the afflicted,”
“the help of Christians,”
“health of the sick,”
and “Virgin most powerful.”
Our Virgin Mother still stands by us
as she stood faithfully by the foot of the Cross,
and as she remained praying with His apostles and disciples.
So, too, will she be close to us
when we turn to her in our necessities.
