Mary, inspired by your readiness
To accept all the wonders God would work in you,
We offer you our desire to conceive in our hearts
Bear in our lives, and bring forth into our world
Jesus, Son of God, who became your Son
For the salvation of all.
May the Holy Spirit who came upon you
ANd overshadowed you be with us today
As we endeavor, members of one Family,
To live the Marianish and sisters of Notre Dame mission
Of building God’s reign.
Marianist 3 O'Clock Prayer
You were lifted up on the wood of the cross to draw all people to yourself; you shed your life's blood so that sin may be forgiven and we might have life to the full.
By embracing this holy mystery of our salvation, may we become your beloved disciples, accepting from your outstretched arms your gift of Mary as our Mother.
May we learn from her, to treasure and ponder your Cross and Resurrection so that one day, with you as our Lord and God, with John our patron and model, and with Mary, our joy and our hope, we may all be gathered together around the Tree of Eternal Life.
And may the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit be glorified in all places through the Immaculate Virgin Mary. Amen.
