12 Days of Mary: Gospel of Life Prayer Card

linking to others devoted to Mary here

Mary, Mother dear,
looks upon us with sadness,
seeks our repentance.

prayer on the back of the holy card:

Gospel of Life Prayer
O Mary,bright dawn of the new world,
Mother of the living,
to you do we entrust the cause of life:
Look down, O Mother,
Upon the vast numbers
of babies not allowed to be born,
of the poor whose lives are made difficult,

of men and women who are victims of brutal violence,
of the elderly and the sick killed by indifference 
or out of misguided mercy.
Grant that all who believe in your Son
may proclaim the Gospel of life
with honesty and love
to the people of our time.
Obtain for them the grace
to accept that Gospel
as a gift ever new,
the joy of celebrating it with gratitude
throughout their lives
and the courage to bear witness to it
resolutely, in order to build,
together with all people of good will,
the civilization of truth and love,
to the praise and glory of God,
the Creator and lover of life.
Joannes Paulus II
(John Paul II)

Amen Nonnie. Such profound words of Pope John Paul the Great. You know he was very devout to Our Lady of Guadalupe - Queen of the Americas.
