Prayer To Our Lady, Help Of Christians
By St. John Bosco
Most Holy Virgin Mary, Help of Christian,
sweet it is to come to your feet
imploring your perpetual help.
If earthly mothers cease not to remember their children,
can you, the most loving of all mothers forget me?
Grant then to me, I implore you,
your perpetual help in all
in every sorrow, and especially in all my temptations.
I ask for your unceasing help for all who
are now suffering.
Help the weak, cure the sick, convert sinners.
Grant through your intercessions many vocations
to the religious life.
Obtain for us, O Mary, Help of Christians,
that having invoked you on earth we may love
and eternally thank you in heaven.
