MARY, MOTHER OF DIVINE GRACE
“Lead everyone to the source of living water opened in the side of your Son and pouring forth for the life of the world hope and peace, mercy and salvation.”
Lord, we call your special love for us grace. In the water flowing from the side of your Son on the cross, we see the torrent of your love. In Christ’s body, sacrificed and glorified, we see the source of this living water, the one channel through which your grace comes into our world. This grace means forgiveness and salvation; it means hope, light and peace for each of us. Seeing Mary at the foot of Christ’s cross when his heart was pierced, we realize her role in making that holy moment possible and her role today in leading all people to the source of grace.
We pray that the new life flowing from Christ’s side might reach everyone. We pray that by following Mary all might come to see the greatest sign of your love. We pray that, beside Mary, all men and women might gather at the foot of the cross to feel the healing effect of your love and to love you in return. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
