|Painting by Joseph Stella|
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
you have given the world it's true light.
Jesus, your Son - the Son of God.
You abandoned yourself completely
to God's call
and thus became a wellspring
of the goodness which flows forth from him.
Show us Jesus, Lead us to him.
Teach us to know and love him,
so that we too can become
capable of true love
and the fountains of a living water
in the midst of a thirsting world.
Pope Benedict XVI
God Is Love
