Sunday 15th August Feast of the Assumption of Our Blessed Lady
“Take my hand O Blessed Mother, hold me firmly lest I fall.
I am nervous when I am walking and to thee I humbly call.
Guide me over every crossing, watch me when I am on the stairs,
let me know you are beside me, listen to my fervent prayer.
Bring me to my destination safely every day.
Help me with each undertaking as the hours pass away.
And when evening falls upon us, and I fear to be alone,
take my hand O Blessed Mother, once again and lead me home”.
