Prayer to our Lady of Good Counsel

Patroness of The National Counsel of Catholic Women


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 gift of faith and living hope prepare us for the fullness of the world to come


Salute to the Cross

Unto the King Eternal, Immortal, and Invisible,

 the only God, be honor and glory forever.  AMEN



Prayer for Father John


God our Father, your Son accepted our sufferings to teach us the virtue of patience in human illness.  Hear the prayers we offer for Father John.  May all who suffer pain, illness or disease realize that they have been chosen to be saints and know that they are joined to Christ in his suffering for the salvation of the world.  We ask this through Christ our Lord.  AMEN.


Father in Heaven, grant Father John comfort in his suffering. Give him courage when afraid, patience when afflicted, hope when dejected and when alone assure him of the prayerful support of your holy people. We as this through Christ our Lord.  AMEN.
