October 1; The Protection of the Most Holy Mother of God

Posted on September 30, 2021

O most pure Mother of God,* you are a mighty defender for those in sorrow.* You are a ready help to those in trouble.* You are the salvation and confirmation of the world.* You are the depth of mercy, the fount of God’s wisdom* and the protectorates of the world.* O faithful, let us sing and praise her glorious protection, saying:* Rejoice, O Full of Grace, the Lord is with you,* and through you He grants great mercy to the world.
