Mary Help of Christians

I pray that Our Lady will bless the Carmelite Friars that care for this holy site.  I will never forget Fr. Healey, OCDS who used to be the spiritual director for our 3rd order meetings. What a happy soul he is and very accepting of God’s divine providence; I believe he taught me so much more by being in his presence then what he spoke.  He has a joy about himself that can only be a gift of the Holy Spirit.  I pray that I can receive this gift and also share it with others like you.  

I pray that Mary Help of Christians will guide us to the Merciful Heart of her son Jesus Christ.  May we not loose sight of His love for us during times of trial, may we seek Him constantly and also beg for Our faithful Mother Mary to guide us always. 


By St. John Bosco

St. John Bosco - Jan 31st

Most Holy Virgin Mary, 
Help of Christians,
how sweet it is 
to come to your feet
imploring your perpetual help.
If earthly mothers cease not 
to remember their children, 
how can you, the most loving 
of all mothers forget me?
Grant then to me, 
I implore you, 
your perpetual help 
in all my necessities, 
in every sorrow, 
and especially in all 
my temptations.
I ask for your unceasing help 
for all who are now suffering.
 Help the weak, 
cure the sick, convert sinners.
Grant through your intercessions 
many vocations to the religious life.
Obtain for us, 
O Mary, Help of Christians,
that having invoked 
you on earth we may 
love and eternally 
thank you in heaven.
