Grace and the Virtues

Grace and the Virtues


O Mary, “full of grace and blessed among women,” stretch out the hand of your motherly protection, we ask you, upon us who gather round your queenly throne as your handmaidens, obedient to your command and resolved with your help to bring to realization in ourselves and our sisters the ideals of truth and Christian perfection.

Our eyes are fixed on you in admiration, immaculate Virgin; you who are loved by the Heavenly Father above all others!

O Virgin Spouse of the Holy Spirit!

Tender Mother of Jesus!

Obtain for us from your Divine Son the grace to reflect your sublime virtues in our conduct, according to our age and condition of life.
