Our Lady of the Millennium
By Pope John Paul II

Mother of the Redeemer,

with great joy we call you blessed.

 

In order to carry out His plan of salvation,

God the Father chose you before the creation of the world.

You believed in His love and obeyed His word.

 

The Son of God desired you for His Mother

when He became man to save the human race.

You received Him with ready obedience and undivided heart.

 

The Holy Spirit loved you as His mystical spouse

and filled you with singular gifts.

You allowed yourself to be led

by His hidden powerful action.

 

On the eve of the third Christian Millennium,

we entrust to you the Church

which acknowledges you and invokes you as Mother.

 

To you, Mother of human family and of the nations,

we confidently entrust the whole humanity,

with its hopes and fears.

Do no let it lack the light of true wisdom.

Guide its steps in the ways of peace.

Enable all to meet Christ,

the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

 

Sustain us, O Virgin Mary, on our journey of faith

and obtain for us the grace of eternal salvation.

O clement, O loving, O sweet Mother of God

and our Mother, Mary!
