Prayer to Our Lady of the Assumption
O Mary,
God's Son became your Son
and you in turn became both our Mother and our Queen.
From your heavenly throne,
intercede for your countless subjects,
especially your priests,
who are daily confronted with life's trials.
Help us to find comfort in our recourse to you
and to come closer to your Divine Son.
May faith in the glorious Savior be spread
and trust in you, His compassionate Mother.
