Mother Mary Potter – Foundress of the Little Company of Mary (with Ecclesiastical approval November 1972)
Maternal Heart of Mary, more loving and suffering than the hearts of all mothers, implore God’s mercy for the dying, that sinners ere they die may be washed in the Precious Blood shed by the Son Jesus, Who made Himself their Brother. May God’s Spirit quicken their hearts by His love.
Jesus look with an eye of mercy upon all the infants born into the world today. Remember how You suffered and died on Calvary for them. Remember how Mary loves the souls for whom You shed Your Precious Blood. Bring to them the cleansing waters of baptism and save them.
Mother Mary, pray for thy children, Pray that God may take to Himself today souls now in His grace who tomorrow might sin.
