Despite so many reminders from you, O Virgin Mary


Immaculate Virgin, Daughter of the Father, Mother of the Son, unmarried Bride of the Holy Spirit, you have shown over the centuries a special attention for France, eldest “Daughter of the Church.” For the last two centuries of revolutions, your apparitions have increased. Today we are at the culmination of a tragedy announced in La Salette (in the French Alps in 1846), which is the apostasy of this country.

Atheism has become a widespread belief supporting laws opposed to the truth of the Gospel but also to natural law. There are protests, but a sort of paralysis has overcome the political sphere.

The underlying reason for this lethargy is the abandonment of the practice of prayer, which has now become habitual in some believers despite so many reminders from you and the teachings of the Church. And this is occurring at the same time that the Muslims, in ever greater numbers, are showing the kind of outward reverence to God that the baptized have forgotten.

Virgin Mary, hear our plea. Everything is possible with God's grace but it solicits our freedom as creatures made in His image and likeness. O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to you.
