Prayer to Mary, Mother of Divine Providence
A favorite devotion of the Barnabites.
Virgin Mary, Immaculate Mother of Divine Providence,
protect our life and sanctify us with the gift of grace.
Obtain for us from the Father of mercy and the God of consolation
pardon for our sins,
reconciliation with our brothers and sisters,
and comfort in the midst of afflictions.
Renew our hearts
that they may become worthy dwelling places of your Divine Son, Jesus.
Help us in our struggles against mediocrity, self-seeking, and pride
so we can generously serve our neighbor.
We entrust ourselves to you, O Mary,
in our pilgrimage in this world.
We invoke you as our guide
and our defense against dangers.
In the present tribulations,
give us secure refuge.
O sweet Mother of Divine Providence,
turn your eyes toward us,
you who are our hope on earth.
Grant that we may have you as our Mother
in the glory of heaven.
