A 2020 PRAYER TO MARY, MOTHER OF GOD IN HER TITLE, OUR LADY OF THE SNOWS
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known
that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
Our Father… Hail Mary…
Our Lady of the Snows, pray for us! St. Joseph, pray for us!
St. Therese of the Little Flower, pray for us! St. Eugene de Mazenod*, pray for us! Glory to the Father…
