Mother Mary, 

Please take over and resolve 

what I am not able to resolve. 

Please take care of those things 

that are beyond my reach. 

You have the power to do so. 

Who can ever say that he was disappointed in you after having called on you? 

Oh Mother, 

take over this moment when I see nothing, especially when there does not seem to be any  light at the end of the tunnel. 

This moment of doubt and fear! 

This hour of making the right decisions when everything seems to be going against me  and oh so dark!  

I beg of you, Mother Mary,  

my beautiful Lady of Emmitsburg,  to take over and resolve 

what I’m not able to resolve.  

I love you!!!
