Because Mary is intimately united to the mystery of her Son's heart,
we pray to her, as our founder did, using the title, Our Lady of the Sacred Heart.
She has known the unfathomable riches of Christ; her whole
being was filled with his love; she leads us to him, pointing to his Heart, the source of boundless love that gives birth to a new world. (MSC Constitutions 18.)

the great things the Lord has done for you.

He chose you for his mother.

He wanted you close to his cross.

He gives you a share in his glory.

He listens to your prayer.

Offer him our prayers of praise and thanksgiving; present our petitions to him.

Let us live like you in the love of your Son so that his Kingdom may come.

Lead us to the source of living water that flows from his heart,

spreading over the world hope and salvation, justice and peace.

See our trust in you; answer our prayer.

Show yourself always our Mother. Amen,

We also honour Saint Joseph and place ourselves under the protection of that faithful and just man,
who was so closely united in love with Jesus and Mary. (MSC Constitutions 19.)
