Our work and our lives as partners in Marianist ministry are rooted in faith and prayer.
Common Marianist Prayers
May the Father, and the Son,
and the Holy Spirit
be glorified in all places
through the Immaculate Virgin Mary
The Three O’clock Prayer
we gather in spirit at the foot of the Cross
with your mother
and the disciple whom you loved.
We ask your pardon for our sins,
which are the cause of your death.
We thank you for remembering us
in that hour of salvation
and for giving us Mary as our mother.
Holy Virgin, take us under your protection
and open us to the action of the Holy Spirit.
St. John, obtain for us the grace
of taking Mary into our lives, as you did
and of assisting her in her mission. Amen.
