The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Let us together with Saints and Angels to celebrate with great joy the Nativity of the most Holy Virgin Mary, because Her birth has filled with joy the whole universe.
The birth of our Heavenly Mother is the end of a sad night , the night of sin, and nothing can be compared with it so well as the black and terrible darkness of death.
When Mary was born the Light of Salvation shone fort . The evils flee, the Angels sing and the whole world is filled with light and joy.
That light which comes to us from Mary is Christ , our Lord and Savior .
We rejoice exultantly in celebrating the birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary for we see this day as the beginning of that great day when Christ the Lord took on human flesh.
We give thanks to Almighty God for His most beautiful handmaid who continues to lead us to the greatest gift of all - Jesus Christ our Lord .
Heavenly Father, may we be filled with everlasting joy as we celebrate the birth of Mary who brought salvation to the world. We make our prayer in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ the Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen

Let us always remember the Poor Souls

Eternal Father, I offer You the most precious blood of thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, for those in my own home and in my family. Amen

Prayer for the Conversion of Scandinavia

300 Days, once a day. (See Instructions.) 54 Leo XIII, April 18, 1885.

O good Jesus , prostrate at Thy feet, we humbly implore Thee, by thy most Sacred Wounds and by the Precious Blood which Thou didst shed for the salvation of the whole world, that Thou wouldst deign to cast a look of pity on the peoples of Scandinavia, seduced from the Faith for so many centuries, and plunged in the darkness of heresy, separated from thy Church, deprived of the participation of the adorable Sacrament of thy Body and Blood, and of the other sacraments instituted by Thee, as the refuge of souls in life and in death.

Remember, O Redeemer of the world, that for these souls too Thou didst suffer bitter death, with the loss of all thy blood. Bring back, O good Shepherd, these wandering sheep ofthine to the one fold and to the healthy pastures of thy Church, so that they may form with us one flock , tended by Thee, and by thy Vicar on earth, the supreme Pontiff, whom, in the person of the Apostle St Peter, Thou didst commission to feed thy sheep and thy lambs. Graciously hear, O good Jesus, the prayers which we offer Thee with the most lively trust in the love of thy Sacred Heart, and to thy most Holy Name be praise, glory, and honor, world without end. Amen.
