THE SOLEMNITY OF MARY, HOLY MOTHER OF GOD
Heavenly Father, You blessed the Virgin Mary with the fullness of grace. She is my model of faith, hope, and love.
I give this New Year to her intercession and ask for her holy prayers. Place my needs into the protection of her motherly love. With her help, I want my faith to grow. Give me an increase in the virtue of hope when troubles tempt me to despair. Guide me in understanding Your infinite love. And join my heart, dear Lord, to the Holy Mother's Immaculate Heart, so that I may improve in loving everyone unconditionally, in imitation of my Savior, Jesus.
