“I chose this place and made it holy,
in order that my name might be honored,
and my eyes and heart might remain there forever.” [2 Chr. 7:16]
“Who is this that comes forth like the dawn,
as beautiful as the moon, as resplendent as the sun..?” (Sg. 6:10)
“I am the Mother of fair love,… and of knowledge, and of holy hope…
My memory is unto everlasting generations” (Eccl. 24:24, 28, Douay).
O God, You have been pleased to bestow upon us unceasing favors
by having placed us under the special protection
of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary.
Grant us, your humble servants,
who rejoice in honoring her today upon earth,
the happiness of seeing her face to face in heaven.
Through Christ our Lord.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin of Guadalupe,
that in your apparitions on Mount Tepeyac
you promised to show pity and compassion to all who,
loving and trusting you,
seek your help and protection.
Accordingly, listen now to our supplications
and grant us consolation and relief.
We are full of hope that,
relying on your help,
nothing can trouble or affect us.
As you have remained with us through your admirable image,
so now obtain for us the graces we need.
