Blessed Anna Maria Taigi invites us to call on Mary as the storekeeper and the almoner of the Divine Mercies.

This prayer was given to Blessed Anna Maria Taigi, an 18th-century wife and mom who is a patron of mothers and families.

Let us pray it with fervor today.

~

Prostrate at thy feet, O Great Queen of Heaven, we venerate thee with the deepest reverence and we confess that thou art the Daughter of the Father, the Mother of the Divine Word, the Spouse of the Holy Ghost. Thou art the storekeeper and the almoner of the Divine Mercies. For this reason, we call thee Mother of Divine Compassion.

Behold us here in affliction and anguish. Deign to show us thy true love. We beg thee to ask the Holy Trinity most fervently to grant us the grace ever to conquer the devil, and the world and our evil passions; the efficacious grace that sanctifies the just, converts sinners, destroys heresies, enlightens infidels and brings all men to the true faith.

Obtain for us this great gift that all the world may form but one people united in the One True Church.

Mary, Mother of Holy Hope, pray for us.
