God of Infinite Love, we live in a world longing for unity, peace and fraternity. In solidarity with all wounded creatures, we cry out to you on behalf of the peoples of all continents. You always listen to the pleas of your people and, when the fullness of time had come, you chose Mary to be the Mother of your Son.
She is the witness of evangelical listening and trust. In obedience of faith, she placed herself into your hands: Let it be done according to your word. Mary faithfully followed Jesus and became a model of the pilgrim Church: Do whatever He tells you. The Holy Spirit led her under the cross and then, into the Cenacle where her presence and prayer united the Apostles in the community of Christ's disciples.
