Our Morning Offering – 8 May – “Mary’s Month” – Friday of the Fourth Week of Easter
Mary, my Good Mother
By St Marcellin Champagnat (1789-1840)
Founder of the Marist Brothers
Mary, my Good Mother,
I am called here to do good.
I can achieve nothing
without the assistance
of your divine Son,
and yours as well.
This is why I ask you to help me.
I ask you to be with me,
directing my hands,
my whole person.
And when I am faced with some difficulties,
Good Mother, I will entrust them to you
though I myself will do all that depends on me.
I offer and commend to you,
all that will be entrusted to me this day.
