Under Your Protection

The following is a litany by Fr. John Burger based on the first three words of the oldest preserved
hymn to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Under your protection, O Mary, we ask your help at this time.
Under your protection, O Blessed Virgin, we are confident in times of stress.
Under your protection, O Queen of heaven, we on earth feel blessed.
Under your protection, O Mother of Jesus, we place our families in your gentle hand.
Under your protection, O Mother of Christians, we feel safe and secure.
Under your protection, O Mother of the healing Jesus, we pray for the compassion of your Son.


– By Columban Fr. John Burger, U.S. Regional Director
