Hail Mary full of grace
Holy Mary Mother of our Redeemer
Mother of Vocation, Our Lady of Walsingham
With great joy we call upon you
Remember we are your children
Called to wholeness
Called to the fullness of joy
Called to realise our heart’s deepest desire,
God’s dream for us
Woman of all graces
Woman of all Amens
Woman who followed him
Teach us to live always in the presence of God,
Who wills us to become holy.
Sustain us, O Mother of Vocation
On our pilgrimage of faith
Help us to live the fullness of the call to life and love
Wherever we find ourselves.
Guide us in making Spirit-filled choices
So that your Immaculate Heart will triumph
And the Kingdom of God will come
in this land and throughout the world
To you we entrust ourselves
and all peoples with our hopes and fears.
Joining our ‘fiat’ to yours
May our lives become a constant song of praise and thanksgiving to God’s glory.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Lady of Walsingham
Mother of Vocation we trust in you
Mother of England (name of country one is in), of all nations and of all creation
Mother of our community/parish/family
Pray for us. Amen.
