PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF PERPETUAL HELP FOR THE CONVERSION OF A NON-CATHOLIC
Trusting in thy goodness, O sweet Lady of Perpetual Help, because thou art the Mother of mercy and the refuge of sinners, we beseech thee to look with pitying eyes upon those who are living outside the pale of the one true Church.
So many non-Catholics possessed of kind hearts, with a charity for God’s poor, are honestly seeking religious truth, but with difficulty, because they are blinded by misinformation and inherited prejudice.
These souls, O Mother of Perpetual Help, are destitute of the knowledge of the one true Faith, yet they must be dear to thee as they are to the adorable Son Jesus, because redeemed by His Precious Blood.
We plead with thee, O Mary, for the conversion of all those who walk in the darkness of error and sin. Virgin Mother, as thou art called “The Seat of Wisdom,” enlighten the minds of our separated brethren, that they may discover the consoling truths of our holy faith, and having discovered them, willingly accept and believe in them.
O Mary, grant us this wonderful favor, that all immortal souls ransomed by the Blood of thy dying Son, may soon be united to us by the bonds of divine charity, so that there may be but one fold and one Shepherd.
