Our Lady of Good Counsel and the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate

Prayer to Our Lady of Good Counsel

Most Glorious Virgin, chosen by the Eternal Counsel to be the Mother of the Eternal Word made flesh, thou who art the treasurer of Divine graces, and the advocate of sinners, I, thy most unworthy servant, have recourse to thee; be thou pleased to be my guide and counselor in this vale of tears.

Obtain for me through the Most Precious Blood of thy Divine Son, the forgiveness of my sins, the salvation of my soul, and the means necessary to obtain it.

In like manner, obtain for Holy Mother the Church victory over her enemies, and the spread of the kingdom of Jesus Christ upon the whole earth. Amen.

Imprimatur: + Patrick A. O'Boyle

... the feast of Our Lady of Good very dear to us here at the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate because it was in the shrine to Our Lady of Good Counsel in Frigento Italy that our order was started by Fr. Stefano Manelli and Fr. Gabriele Pellettieri. Listen as Fr. Angelo explains how this happened under the wise counsel of Our Lady.

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.
