Today is Saturday, the day of the week devoted to the Blessed Mother. On this – her special day – let us together honor the Virgin Mary’s Immaculate Purity. Let us pray, most especially in these times of tribulation, that we too may carry our souls unstained through this life and thus be brought into the life to come.
Blessed Be Your Purity
Blessed be your purity,
May it be blessed for ever,
For no less than God takes delight
In such exulted beauty.
To you, heavenly Princess,
Holy Virgin Mary,
I offer on this day
My whole heart, life, and soul.
Look upon me with compassion;
Do not leave me, my mother.
(Prayer taken from Handbook of Prayers Rev. James Socias Gen. Ed. 478)
Thank you and don’t forget to offer little acts of love to our Blessed Mother on her special day.
