I used to get a lot of stuff in the mail from religious organizations. Prayer cards, Mass Intention folders, medals and other things. I haven’t gotten anything like that in a long time until today (Wednesday, April 27th).
I carefully placed the key ring with the image of Our Lady in my guitar case (along with a picture of my father and the father of a good friend of mine – both of whom played guitar). The three of them will watch over me and the rest of the choir as we are reunited in our ministry.
A Prayer To
Our Lady of
Our Lady of Guadalupe,
make intercession for holy Church,
protect the sovereign Pontiff,
help all those who invoke you in their necessities,
and since you are the ever Virgin Mary
and Mother of the true God,
obtain for us from your most holy Son
the grace of keeping our faith,
of sweet hope in the midst of the bitterness of life
of burning charity, and the precious gift
of final perseverance.
