Call upon Mary: A Prayer
Below is another beautiful prayer of trust in Mary’s intercession. When seeking Mary’s intercession, remember the words of Jesus from the cross:
“When Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing near, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.” (John 19:26-27)
As disciples of Jesus, we know that He looks upon us with love when we accept His mother into our hearts. As Jesus could not resist His mother’s request to turn water into wine during the wedding feast at Cana, we can trust that when Mary presents our prayers to her Son, Jesus will manifest His glory (John 2:12).
In the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I Trust
Look to the Star, call upon Mary!
In danger, in difficulty or in doubt,
think of Mary, call upon Mary.
Keep her name on your lips,
never let it pass out of your heart.
Following in her footsteps, you will not go astray;
praying to her, you will not fall into despair;
thinking of her you will not err.
While she keeps hold of your hand,
you will not fall,
you will not grow weary,
you will have no fear.
Enjoying her protection,
you will reach the goal.
– Saint Bernard
