    Lord Jesus,

    You answered the Canaanite woman’s request

    to cure her daughter.

    With her we pray to you:

    “Lord, come and help us.

    Give us the bread of children!”

    Save us, O Lord, because of your love!

     

    Lord Jesus,

    God of all tenderness

    and of all mercy,

    You who spent your time on earth doing good,

    we pray to you:

    Give to each of us our share of joy and happiness,

    so that we can, on our road of life,

    discover you love constantly,

    bless and glorify you,

    and arrive at perfect joy,

    which is to live near your Father

    with You and the Holy Spirit,

    for ever and ever.

    Lord Jesus, Son of the Virgin Mary,

    we praise you and bless you

    for having so glorified your Mother

    in her soul and body.

     

    If the day of death

    is the day of birth into heaven,

    your Mother was never so young

    as on the morning of her Assumption.

     

    Help us to grow old as she did

    while continually becoming younger,

    until the day when we will be children enough

    to enter the Kingdom.

     

    We ask this of you

    in the name of the love you have for your Mother,

    who is also our Mother

    and the first of all the children of God.

    (Lucien Deiss, Biblical Prayers)
