Prayer for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception
Mother of God, you call us to say "yes" to God's call, as you did, in spite of our fears, in spite of our hesitations and in spite of who society tells us is or is not deserving of our service.
Your "yes" reminds us that we are called to serve all of God's people, regardless of how they are similar or different from us.
Bring us closer to your Son, and one another in our service, that we might work together as partners in relationship, deepening our trust in God and one another.
Bless us and all those we serve in the health care ministry.
Hail, Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
