Our Lady of Knock, Queen of Ireland,
you gave hope to your people in a time
of distress and comforted them in sorrow.
You have inspired countless pilgrims to
pray with confidence to your divine Son,
remembering His promise: “Ask and you
shall receive, seek and you shall find”.
Help me to remember that we are all
pilgrims on the road to heaven. Fill me
with love and concern for my brothers
and sisters in Christ, especially those
who live with me. Comfort me when I
am sick, lonely or depressed. Teach me
how to take part ever more reverently
in the Holy Mass. Pray for me now,
and at the hour of my death. Amen
