The 5th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C. Jesus Calls for you today!

Prayer to Our Lady of Lourdes

O ever Immaculate Virgin, Mother of mercy, health of the sick, refuge of sinners, comforter of the afflicted, you know my wants, my troubles, my sufferings; look with mercy on me.

By appearing in the Grotto of Lourdes, you were pleased to make it a privileged sanctuary, whence you dispense  your favors; and already many sufferers have obtained the cure of their infirmities, both spiritual and corporal.

I come, therefore, with complete confidence to implore your maternal intercession.  

Obtain, O loving Mother, the grant of my requests.  

Through gratitude for your favors, I will endeavor to imitate your virtues, that I may one day share your glory.  Amen.
