O God, our Creator, We thank you for the gift of life and all the gifts of nature: Our senses and faculties, our talents and abilities. We thank you for creating us in your image and likeness, and for giving us this earth to use and develop, to respect and cherish. Despite our failures, you continue to show your love for us today by increasing the life of your Spirit in us at the eucharistic table.
Finally, we thank you, loving Father, for giving us Mary the Mother of your Son, to be our Mother of Perpetual Help. We are grateful for all the favours we have received through her intercession. We pray that those past favours may inspire us to greater confidence in your loving mercy and to seek the aid of Our Mother of Perpetual Help. Amen.
