The Annunciation of the Lord.
Virgin Most Holy,
Mother of the world,
intercede for us with your Son,
that we may have the grace
to seek nothing other than to do his will,
and the courage to live our lives
in the faith of him
who became incarnate in your womb,
Our Lady’s Visitation to Elizabeth
you went in haste
to share the good news of salvation
with your cousin, Elizabeth.
May we who bear your Son in our hearts
possess the same eagerness to share with others
the joy that he has given us,
so that being filled with the Holy Spirit,
we may all rejoice in God,
The Birth of Our Lord
Father in heaven,
creator of all,
in history’s moment
when all was ready,
you sent your Son to dwell among us,
the Word made flesh,
Teach us to respect the dignity of marriage,
and to uphold the sanctity of human life
from the moment of
conception to natural death,
and that our homes may reflect
the love of the Holy Family.
The Ministry of Our Lord
may the peace that is
the Kingdom of God,
flow to us from the truth and life,
the holiness and grace,
the justice and love
of your Son Jesus Christ.
Queen of peace,
obtain for us and for the nations of the world
the peace for which all people long.
The Crucifixion of Our Lord
Father most merciful,
grant us the grace of true sorrow
for the many sins
which offend the Sacred Heart
of your dear Son,
and the Immaculate Heart
of his Holy Mother,
and grant pardon
and rest to the souls of those who,
for whatever motive,
destroyed the holy Shrine of Walsingham,
and brought about divisions
which have lasted to our day.
The Resurrection of Our Lord
help us to celebrate with joy and thanksgiving
the resurrection of your Son,
that as he has been raised from the dead,
so our mortal lives also may be crowned
by the ultimate joy of rising from sin and death
with him for ever,
who has made all things new.
The coming of the Holy Spirit
Lord Jesus Christ,
you gathered your apostles together
in prayer with Mary,
the Mother of Jesus,
and you filled them with the Holy Spirit.
Send forth your Spirit upon us
and renew in us the graces
of Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation.
Ignite us, Lord,
with an ever greater passion and love for the Gospel
which will enliven our Christian witness
and bring about the fulfilment of the
of the Catholic Faith in England and Wales
as heralded by
Blessed Dominic Barberi CP
and Blessed John Henry Newman.
May we be once again an Isle of saints.
The Assumption of Our Lady
you raised the Mother of your Son
to the glory of Heaven,
grant through her intercession
that the hearts and minds of all
may be open to your call,
so that loving you above all things
we may be signs of your presence,
and ardent but gentle servants of the Gospel.
The Coronation of Our Lady.
The Prayer of the Feast:
in the mystery of the Incarnation,
Mary conceived your Son
in her heart before she conceived him in her womb.
As we, your pilgrim people,
rejoice in her patronage,
grant that we also may welcome him into our hearts,
and so, like her,
be made a holy house
fit for his eternal dwelling.
We ask this through
Our Lord Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
for ever and ever.
