The intercessions for today:
Savior of the world, by your redeeming might you preserved your mother beforehand from all stain of sin, - keep watch over us, lest we sin. May your mother intercede for us, Lord.
You are our redeemer who made the immaculate Virgin Mary your purest home and the sanctuary of the Holy Spirit, - make us temples of your Spirit for ever. May your mother intercede for us, Lord.
Eternal Word, you taught your mother to choose the better part, - grant that in imitating her we may seek the food that brings life everlasting. May your mother intercede for us, Lord.
King of kings, you lifted up your mother, body and soul, into heaven; - help us to fix our thoughts on things above. May your mother intercede for us, Lord.
Lord of heaven and earth, you crowned Mary and set her at your right hand as queen, - make us worthy to share this glory. May your mother intercede for us, Lord.
Father of mercy,
give your people help and strength from heaven.
The birth of the Virgin Mary's Son
was the dawn of our salvation.
May this celebration of her birthday
bring us closer to lasting peace.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. - Amen.
