Traveling can be stressful, so pull this out before you leave and return to it along the way ...

Whether it’s a family road trip or a couple’s getaway, traveling often involves lots of prep, wrong turns, unmet expectations, and plans gone awry.

This brief prayer from Madonna House Apostolate — a Catholic community of lay men, women, and priests founded in 1947 by Baroness Catherine Doherty in Combermere, Ontario — can help put you in the right mindset to approach your travels with peace of heart:

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.

Our Lady of Combermere, pray for us.
Our Lady of the Way, pray for us.
St. Raphael, pray for us.
St. Frances of Rome, pray for us.
St. Joseph Cupertino, pray for us.
St. Martin de Porres, pray for us.
Our Lady of [the place where you are], pray for us.

May Our Lady cover us with the mantle of her love and keep us safe, and bring us first to our earthly home and then to that of her Son in heaven.
