Marianist Dedication Prayer

Prayer of Dedication to Mary's Apostolic Mission: A Prayer for Apostolic Filial Piety According to the Spirit of Blessed William Joseph Chaminade

O Good Jesus
help us to love Mary,
your physical Mother
and our spiritual Mother,
as you love her
and wish her to be loved.

Mary, our Mother,
help us to respond as faithful disciples
to the call of Jesus.
In the spirit of
Blessed William Joseph Chaminade,
help us to participate faithfully
in your apostolic mission
to present Jesus to the world about us
as you did and still do today.

We ask this grace
in the name of Jesus, Son of Mary.
May Jesus and Mary lead us
into union with the Triune God.
