Prayer to Our Mother of Perpetual Help

Our Mother of Perpetual Help, 

Today we face so many difficulties. You remind us to reach out and help those in need. Help us understand that our lives belong to others as much as they belong to us. Mary, Model of Christian love, we know we cannot heal every ill or solve every problem. But with God's grace, we intend to do what we can. May we be true witnesses to the world that love for one another really matters. May our daily actions proclaim how fully our lives are modeled after yours, Mother of Perpetual Help. Amen.

Come Healing

 

O gather up the brokenness and bring it to me now / The fragrance of those promises you never dared to vow / The splinters that you carry, the cross you left behind / Come healing of the body / Come healing of the mind / And let the heavens hear it, the penitential hymn / Come healing of the spirit / Come healing of the limb

Behold the gates of mercy in the arbitrary space / And none of us deserving, the cruelty or the grace / O solitude of longing where love has been confined /  Come healing of the body / Come healing of the mind / O see the darkness yielding, that tore the light apart / Come healing of the reason / Come healing of the heart

O troubled dust concealing, an undivided love / The Heart beneath is teaching to the broken Heart above / O let the heavens falter and let the earth proclaim:  Come healing of the Altar / Come healing of the Name

O longing of the branches to lift the little bud / O longing of the arteries to purify the blood / And let the heavens hear it, the penitential hymn / Come healing of the spirit / Come healing of the limb / O let the heavens hear it, the penitential hymn / Come healing of the spirit / Come healing of the limb
