O Lord our God,
In order to redeem us all and lead us to yourself,
You sent us your beloved Son,
Who was made flesh
And born of the Virgin Mary.
Grant that we may be formed by her
in the image of her Son,
And help us participate
In the love of Christ for his Mother.
You associated Mary in the mystery of her Son
So that she might be the new Eve,
Mother of the living.
Confirm the alliance that we have made with her.
May our devotedness extend her maternal charity on earth
And promote the growth of the Church, the body of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.
