Mary, Mystical Rose, Mother of the Church,
Help the Holy Father and all bishops, all priests and all religious.
Intercede for the sorely-pressed Church of our times.
Pray for our threatened world, into which Satan's hot breath is blowing.
Draw us all to your immaculate motherly heart.
You are the Mother of Pity.
From Maria, Rosa Mystica (Published by Druckeri Burger in 1984)
