She Who is Constant in Prayer

Oh, how the Apostles must have cried!

When she, whose soul magnified the Lord,

tasted death.

Oh, how the Apostles must have been stunned!

When Thomas, my dear Thomas, begged to behold

Her face once more.

Instead of her beauty and

Without her loving countenance,

Another tomb was found empty.

Shock took over and doubt sunk in

...hard and fast...

But she, who was without sin,

Yet, still in need of Salvation,

Kept in constant prayer,

For those faithful servants who

Served her Son and

Loved her unconditionally,

So that they would know and

Teach the world that the

Fullness of her spiritual

And bodily existence experienced

The heavenly kingdom of Christ.

Teach me your ways, Ever Virgin Mary!

Protect me, Most Holy Lady!

Intercede for me, Most Holy Theotokos!

Today, in my deepest prayer I implore you.

Do not give up on me.

Remain in constant prayer for me.

Love me.
