Our Morning Offering – 2 February – The Feast of the Presentation of the Lord
Prayer for the Feast
of the Presentation of the Lord
By Abbot Prosper Guéranger OSB (1805-1875)
O Blessed Mother,
the sword is already in your heart.
You foreknow the future
of the Fruit of your womb.
May our fidelity in following Him,
through the coming mysteries,
of His public life
bring some alleviations
to the sorrows
of your maternal heart.
