Our Morning Offering – 4 December – The Memorial of St John Damascene – Father and Doctor of the Church

O Mary, my Hope!
St John Damascene 

I salute you, O Mary!
you are the hope of Christians:
receive the prayer of a sinner,
who loves you tenderly,
honours you in a special manner
and places in you the whole hope
of his salvation.
From you I have my life.
You reinstate me in the grace of your Son:
you are the sure pledge of my salvation.
I beseech of you, therefore, to deliver me
from the burden of my sins:
dispel the darkness of my mind,
banish from my heart the love of the world,
repress the temptations of my enemies
and so rule my whole life, that by your means
and under your guidance,
I may obtain everlasting happiness in heaven.
Amen (modernised)

PRAYER FOR THE INTERCESSION OF MARY by St John Damascene
I salute thee, O Mary!
thou art the hope of Christians:
receive the prayer of a sinner,
who loves thee tenderly,
honours thee in a special manner
and places in thee the whole hope
of his salvation. From thee I have my life.
Thou dost reinstate me in the grace of thy Son:
thou art the sure pledge of my salvation.
I beseech of thee, therefore, to deliver me
from the burden of my sins:
dispel the darkness of my mind,
banish from my heart the love of the world,
repress thou the temptations of mine enemies
and so rule my whole life, that by thy means
and under thy guidance,
I may obtain everlasting happiness in heaven.
Amen.
