On this day, O Beautiful Mother!
On this day we give thee our love;
Near thee, Madonna, fondly we hover,
trusting thy gentle care to prove.
On this day we ask to share,
dearest Mother, thy sweet care;
Aid us e'er, our feet astray,
wandering from thy guiding way.
Queen of Angels, deign to hear,
thy dear children's humble pray'r;
Young hearts gain, O Virgin pure,
sweetly to thyself allure.
Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ, Eternal High Priest, Mother of all priests and our Mother, help us respond generously to the Holy Spirit's request, through the voice of His Church, to offer up to God Eucharistic adoration for priests. Amen.
