Precious Blood Devotions
OUR LADY OF INTERCESSION
MOST holy Mary, Our
Lady of Intercession, whose maternal
tenderness gathers in one
embrace all the Souls redeemed by the Precious Blood
of thy Son Jesus, we come before
thy royal throne with sadness in our hearts as we remember
those who have gone
before us, but also with unlimited confidence in thine
intercession. Death, which burst
asunder the bonds of earth, has not destroyed the affection
which binds us to those who lived
in the same Faith as we do. O Mary, countless souls await
with unutterable anxiety the
assistance of our prayers, and the merits of our good
works in that place of expiation.
Urged by the charity
of Jesus Christ, we raise our countenance
and heart in supplication
to thee, the compassionate Mother of all believers, in
favor of those suffering Souls.
Make our prayers of good effect, O Mary; obtain for them the power to move the Heart of Jesus our Redeemer through thy motherly intercession. Let thine incomparable holiness supply the defects of our misery, thy love make good our languid affection, thy power strengthen our weakness. grant, O Queen of Heaven, that the ardent desire of the Souls of the departed to be admitted to the Beatific Vision may soon be satisfied. We pray to thee, O Mother, especially for the Souls of our relations, of priests, of those who were zealous in honoring thee, of those who did good to the Souls of others, of those who wept with them and for them and finally, for the Souls of those who are forgotten.
Grant that one day, when we are all reunited in Heaven, we may be able to rejoice in the possession of God, in the happiness of thy dear presence, in the fellowship of Saints, thanking thee forever for all the blessings thou hast obtained for us, O Mother, who art our unfailing comfort. Amen.
