Our Patron Saint

OUR LADY OF GOOD COUNSEL PRAYER

God of heavenly wisdom, You have given us Mary, Mother of Jesus, to be our guide and counselor.  Grant that we may always seek her motherly help in this life and so enjoy her blessed presence in the life to come.

O, Mother of Good Counsel, patroness of the National Council of Catholic Women, intercede for us, that we may be wise, courageous, and loving leaders of the Church.

Help us, dear mother, to know the mind of Jesus, your son.  May the Holy Spirit fill us with reverence for God’s creation, and compassion for all God’s children.  May our labors of love on earth enhance the reign of God and may God’s gifts of faith and living hope prepare us for the fullness of the world to come.

Amen
