For those who were lost in the tragedy at Virginia Tech, and for those who are left reeling in the wake of violence . . .
Remember, O Most Gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known, that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired with the confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, My Mother. To you I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen.
