Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of Peace

The Mother of Christ is Daughter and Queen of Peace

V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with your spirit.

V. Lift up your hearts.
R. We lift them up to the Lord.

V. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
R. It is right and just.

It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation,
always and everywhere to give you thanks, Lord, holy Father,
and, as we honour the memory of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
to proclaim with fitting praise
the greatness of your name.

She is your lowly handmaid,
receiving your word from the Angel Gabriel
and conceiving in her virginal womb
the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ,
your Son, our Lord.

She is the faithful mother,
standing fearless beside the cross
as her Son sheds his Blood for our salvation
and reconciles all things to himself in peace.

She is the disciple of Christ and daughter of peace,
joining in prayer with the apostles
as she awaits your promised Gift,
the Spirit of unity and peace, of love and joy.

Now, with the Saints and all the Angels
we praise you for ever:

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts.
Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.
