Prayer to Our Lady Help of Christians
O Mary, powerful Virgin, you are the mighty and glorious protector of Holy Church; you are the marvellous Help of Christians; you are as terrible as an army set in battle array; you alone have destroyed every heresy in the whole world. In the midst of our anxiety, our problems and our distress defend us from the power of the enemy and at the hour of our death receive our souls in paradise. Amen. 
                                                 (St. John Bosco)

It is the office of a mother to give help to her children in all their needs. This title expresses in practice Our Lady’s position as our mother. She has all the help we need and she wants to give it to us, if only we will ask for it.

Call on Mary in all your difficulties with the little prayer, Mary Help of Christians, Pray for us, and you will never call in vain.

“Spread devotion to Mary, Help of Christians, and you will see what miracles are”.
                                                  (St. John Bosco)
