PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE


Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary of Guadalupe, that in thy celestial apparitions on the mount of Tepeyac, thou didst promise to show thy compassion and pity towards all who, loving and trusting thee, seek thy help and call upon thee in their necessities and afflictions.

Thou didst promise to hearken to our supplications, to dry our tears and to give us consolation and relief. 
Never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession,
 either for the common welfare, or in personal anxieties, was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence, we fly unto thee, O Mary, ever Virgin Mother of the True God! Though 
grieving under the weight of our sins, we come to prostrate ourselves in thy august presence, certain that thou 
wilt deign to fulfill thy merciful promises. We are full of hope that, standing beneath thy shadow and 
protection, nothing will trouble or afflict us, nor need we fear illness, or misfortune, or any other sorrow.
Thou hast decided to remain with us through thy admirable image, thou who art our Mother, our health and
 our life. Placing ourselves beneath thy maternal gaze and having recourse to thee in all our necessities we 
need do nothing more. O Holy Mother of God, despise not our petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer us. 

(Here mention your petition.)

Five Hail Marys...in gratitude for the four apparitions to Juan Diego and the one to Juan Bernardino.
