1.  We turn to you, Our Mother of Good Counsel, as we seek to imitate your faith-filled life.

2.  Devotional Prayer to Our Blessed Mother

We fly to your protection, most holy Mother of God; please listen to our petitions and needs, and deliver us from all dangers, ever glorious and blessed Virgin Mary.

Mary, our model and mother, by your obedience and patience you have taught us how to be true children of God.  Please help us by your powerful assistance to overcome all our weaknesses, and to fulfill perfectly our tasks in life.

By your compassionate aid may we ever stand in spirit with you beneath the cross of Christ so that we may also rejoice with you in your divine Sonís triumphant victory over sin and death.

In your maternal kindness help us to be faithful to prayers in the company of Godís Church as you were one with the Apostles in the upper room as you waited for the promised Spirit at Pentecost.
With your gracious assistance may we be near you in the glory of Christís kingdom come to sing with you and all the faithful the eternal praise of God.  Amen.

Mary, I renounce my spirit, and I ask for your spirit.
Mary, take away my thoughts and give me your thoughts.
