Our Lady of the Assumption, pray for us!

assumption-of-mary-1642Our Lady has interceded on our behalf before to help us overcome the threat of evil.  We recall the Battle of Lepanto and the Battle of Vienna.

Having witnessed the recent slaughter of so many by the Islamic State, let us join together in imploring Our Lady’s intercession: praying for those who have died, both Christian and Muslim, and praying that a regime capable of so much evil will be overcome.

Let’s storm heaven in prayer as we honour Our Blessed Mother in her glorious  Assumption into heaven [August 15th].

In our parish of Annerley Ekibin, we can extend our prayer for these intentions before our Eucharistic Lord in the weekly all-night vigil of Eucharistic Exposition and Adoration, from 6:00pm Thursday to 6:45am Friday [just before the Friday 7:00am Mass] – at Saint Elizabeth’s Chapel, Effingham Street, Tarragindi.

See here for the Mass times for the Solemnity of the Assumption – a holy day of obligation.
