May 5th Month of Mary

A FARMER’S PRAYER TO MARY

O Blessed Lady of the Fields,

who loved the land of your native Galilee,

who watched the tiller of the earth and the shepherd of the flock

go out and return from Nazareth,

who lived with and loved the rural folk of the village,

look down graciously upon the fields and pastures of this,

your adopted land.

Make our homes sanctuaries of Christ as was your home.

Make our fields fertile and abundant in the harvest.

Help us to understand more fully the dignity of our toil

and the merit it acquires when offered through you to your Divine Son,

Jesus Christ, who with the Father and the Holy Spirit,

lives and reigns for ever and ever.
