150th Jubilee Prayer for Our Lady of Perpetual Succour



O Mother of Perpetual Help,

Icon of Love

Your sorrowful gaze

at our suffering and that of Jesus

entrusts us into the love of the Father


Help us to make you known even more

And to be missionaries

of the good, beautiful and joyful life of the Gospel

Open our hearts

to the cry of those without hope

until all come to believe.


Teach us

to  ponder the Word in our heart

and to do what your Son asks us to do

Enable us to walk with you

with the great light of faith

to light up our path


Thus one day we will be able

to contemplate with you

the face of the Father

who with the Son and Holy Spirit

lives and reigns forever and ever.




Prayer to Our Mother of Perpetual Help

IMG 1064


O Mother of Perpetual Help, grant that I may ever invoke the most powerful name, which is the safeguard of the living and the salvation of the dying. O Purest Mary, O Sweetest Mary. Let Your name be ever on my lips. Delay not, O Blessed Lady, to help me whenever I call on You, for, in akk my needs, in all my temptations I shall never cease to call on You, ever repeating Your sacred name, or ever only think of you.

I thank God for having given You, for my good, so sweet, so powerful, so lovely a name. But I will not be content with merely pronouncing Your name; let my love for You prompt me ever to hail Thee, Mother of Perpetual Help.

IMG 1981O Mother of Perpetual Help, grant that I may always invoke your most powerful name, for your name is help in life and salvation in death. Mary most pure, Mary most sweet, let your name henceforth be the breath of my life. Delay not, O lady, to come to my aid whenever I call upon you in my hour of need. O Mother of Perpetual Help, what comfort, what sweetness, what confidence, what emotion fill my soul at the very mention of your name.  I thank the Lord for having given you to me and I will never cease to honour you for your goodness and eternal grace. Amen

Say three Our Fathers, three Hail Mary and Glorias.

Hymn of St Therese of Lisieux to Our Lady of Perpetual Succour


St Teresa [I]    


 Full well you know that from my tenderest years

 Your image sweet has borne my heart away,

 For tender pity in your gaze appears,

 With you I found the golden light of day. 




 O Virgin Mary, when to heaven I go

 Your loveliness forever shall I see; 

 But my Perpetual Succour here below

 Is your sweet Image ever dear to me.  




When fervour made me willing to obey

It seemed as if your picture on me smiled,

But if betimes, my will was led astray,

Your welling tears reproved your erring child.




In hearkening ever to my lowly prayer, 

You showered on me the sweetness of your love,

The very thought of you is now a share 

A foretaste of eternal bliss above.
