The 3rd-century saint and doctor of the Church has a beautiful prayer to the Virgin Mary.
St. Athanasius was a highly influential saint of the 3rd century, helping the Church navigate through many trials.
He is recognized as a Doctor of the Church and composed the following prayer to the Virgin Mary.
It is becoming for you, O Mary,
to be mindful of us,
as you stand near Him
who bestowed upon you all graces,
for you are the Mother of God and our Queen.
Come to our aid for the sake of the King,
the Lord God and Master who was born of you.
For this reason you are called “full of grace.”
Be mindful of us, most holy Virgin,
and bestow on us gifts
from the riches of your graces,
O Virgin full of grace.
