After the birth of your Son, you remained a virgin–Mother of God intercede for us.

Mother of God - intercede for us! ©, 2011

 Hello everybody! I hope that I have not let anyone down with my posts (or lack there of) this week. After the Tuesday post on the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help, I had to get my prescription for my glasses checked out.  As those of you who wear contacts or glasses all know, this means getting your eyes dilated and then you cannot see the tiny little letters on your keyboard for 24 hrs. (Wednesday & Thursday) unless the keyboard is about 1 ft. from your face. Yesterday, I was at the Monthly All Night Eucharistic Vigil of Reparation & Prayer – my shift covered 8:00 P.M.-12:30 A.M. – when  I got home (at 2:00A.M.) I was to cooked to post.

 However, since I started this blog, I have not missed a Saturday post in honor of the Blessed Mother and – with her help – I never intend to miss one. 

 Today, for the Saturday devotion, I will be posting the oldest known prayer to the Blessed Mother. This prayer is known in Latin as “Sub tuum praesidium,” and was found in a Greek papyrus c. 300 A.D.

                                    Ancient Prayer to the Virgin.

 We turn to you for protection, Holy Mother of God. Listen to our prayers and help us in our needs. Save us from every danger, Glorious and Blessed Virgin.

 Thank you! and especially since today is First Saturday, don’t forget to offer little acts of love to our Blessed Mother on her special day.
