International Women’s Day

O Lord Jesus Christ, who hast given us a wonderful example of faith and obedience in the person of thy blessed Mother Mary: Grant us to see her image in all women, that we should treat them with honor and respect; and likewise vouchsafe to endow all women with the strength and courage of thy blessed Mother, that they may shew forth thy glory to all the world; and this we ask through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
