O MARY BRIGHT DAWN OF THE NEW WORLD


O Mary 
bright dawn of the new world,
Mother of the living,
to you do we entrust the cause of life:
Look down, O Mother,
upon the vast numbers 
of babies not allowed to be born,
of the poor whose lives are made difficult,
of men and women 
who are victims of brutal violence,
of the elderly and the sick killed 
by indifference or out of misguided mercy.
Grant that all who believe in your Son 
may proclaim the Gospel of life 
with honesty and love 
to the people of our time.
Obtain for them the grace 
to accept that Gospel 
as a gift ever new,
the joy of celebrating it with gratitude 
throughout their lives 
and the courage to bear witness to it resolutely, in order to build,
together with all people of good will,
the civilization of truth and love,
to the praise and glory of God,
the Creator and lover of life.
