Our Lady of Knock,
Queen of Ireland,
you gave hope to our people
in a time of distress and comforted them in sorrow.
You have inspired countless pilgrims
to pray with confidence to your Divine Son,
remembering His promise:
“Ask and you shall receive,
Seek and you shall find”.
Help me to remember that we are all pilgrims
on the road to heaven.
Fill me with love and concern
for my brothers and sisters in Christ,
especially those who live with me.
Comfort me when I am sick or lonely or depressed.
Teach me how to take part ever more reverently in the holy Mass.
Pray for me now,
and at the hour of my death.
