Trinity, if it is your will, Jesus please return in glory today,

bring your justice to this world, and have mercy on us sinners.

Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

“Our tainted nature’s solitary boast” as poet William Wordsworth spoke of Mary. Mary is the perfect creation of Almighty God.  Beautiful sunrises, breathtaking sunsets, and all the creativity of human energies in between fail in comparison with Mary. Our humble attempt to describe the many qualities and attributes of Our Lady in her Litany, surely fall short of those known to Almighty God.  Mary as it pleases you, we humbly ask for your continued intercession for a weak and sinful humanity.        Saint Juan Diego, please pray for us.

Text Box: May 13, 1846, during the Sixth Provincial Council of Baltimore. With enthusiastic acclaim and with unanimous approval and consent, the Fathers [of the Council] have chosen the Blessed Virgin Mary, conceived without sin, as the Patroness of the United States of America.
A decline in devotion to Mary was noted by the American bishops in their 1973 pastoral letter: “No survey is needed to show that all over the country many forms of Marian devotion have fallen into disuse….We view with great sympathy the distress our people feel over this….and we share their concern that the young be taught a deep and true love for the Mother of God.”
