Dec. 10: OUR LADY OF LORETO. Brief history and prayer.
OUR LADY OF LORETO
Our Lady of Loreto, Mother of Our Lord Jesus Christ, You have taken excellent care of the home of Nazareth. With St. Joseph, we entrust to you our family so that Jesus may always be happy in our home and always be the center of our family life. Our Lady of Loreto, pray for our family, pray for us!
A Blessed Advent to you and your family! Fr. Rolly Arjonillo
PRAYER OF POPE BENEDICT XVI
Mary, Mother of the “Yes”, you listened to Jesus,
and know the tone of his voice and the beating of his heart.
Morning Star, speak to us of him,
and tell us about your journey of following him on the path of faith.
Mary, who dwelt with Jesus in Nazareth,
impress on our lives your sentiments,
your docility, your attentive silence,
and make the Word flourish in genuinely free choices.
Mary, speak to us of Jesus, so that the freshness of our faith
shines in our eyes and warms the heart of those we meet,
as you did when visiting Elizabeth,
who in her old age rejoiced with you for the gift of life.
Mary, Virgin of the Magnificat
help us to bring joy to the world and, as at Cana,
lead every young person involved in service of others
to do only what Jesus will tell them.
Mary, look upon the…youth,
so that the soil of the… Church will be fertile.
Pray that Jesus, dead and Risen, is reborn in us,
and transforms us into a night full of light, full of him.
Mary, Our Lady of Loreto, Gate of Heaven,
help us to lift our eyes on high.
We want to see Jesus, to speak with him,
to proclaim his love to all.
BENEDICTUS PP. XVI
