Prayer to Our Lady of Aparecida by Pope John Paul II

Prayer to Our Lady of Aparecida by Pope John Paul II

Lady Aparecida, a son of yours who belongs to you
unreservedly–totus tuus–called by the mysterious plan
of Providence to be the Vicar of your Son on earth,
wishes to address you at this moment. He recalls with
emotion, because of the brown color of this image of
yours, another image of yours, the Black Virgin of Jasna Gora.

Mother of God and our Mother, protect the Church,
the Pope, the bishops, the priests and all the faithful
people; welcome under your protecting mantle men and
women religious, families, children, young people, and
their educations.

Health of the sick and Consoler of the afflicted,
comfort those who are suffering in body and soul;
be the light of those who are seeking Christ, the
Redeemer of all; show all people that you are
the Mother of our confidence.

Queen of Peace and Mirror of Justice, obtain peace
for the world, ensure that Brazil and all countries may have
lasting peace, that we will always live together as
brothers and sisters and as children of God.

Our Lady Aparecida, bless all your sons and daughters
who pray and sing to you here and elsewhere. Amen.
