Our Lady’s Canton Prayers

Our Lady wishes to have communities of prayer or cantons where the messages of Our Lady’s Message of Mercy to the World are read during the Rosary so that the messages come alive.

Reason for the Canton explained by the Blessed Mother

“I want that you pray everyday and to thank God for the graces He is giving you through My coming to you. Thank Divine Providence, for without it you would not be here. Yes my child, I know the world is crude but it is through your devotion to My Immaculate Heart can you put things right with God. God Himself desires this devotion that it should save many sinners and find its greatest fulfillment in the means lam giving you here, as at Fatima. Not only did I call then, but I call again today, here, that the reality of the Gospel message be once again made known. Do not worry, pray and hold on to your belief in God. God must come first that He may fill your emptiness with which the world cannot fill. God can do this if you pray. If not, your faith will become indifferent but God will still be there, this is the reality I am giving you. Holiness is for all of you, but it is up to you to use the resources God gives you, that is prayer and reparation. Give God His due honour and He will bless you, this is why you were given life. Thank you for coming.” Sept. 8 1996

Purpose of the Canton the Blessed Mother explains

“Dear little ones, I wish to gather around My Immaculate Heart a vast amount of valiant little souls. I will truly form them Myself hidden enclosed under My Holy Mantle My little one I wish to draw them from the ranks of the lowest and even from the ranks of My predilected. I wish them to hide under My mantle in humility, consecrated to Me in a special way. I will Myself consecrate them in the spiritual way. Thank you for coming.” Dec 8 1991

“Dear Children! Your vitality must come from your devotion to Me thus you become more and more like My Son. Live My messages then you cause that change of heart where before no change was possible. Do not, dear children, move away from My Motherly invitation but move towards your Mother who looks to your every need. Your vocation today is to be My Apostles through your wonder of all that lam doing among you. My Motherly Heart dear children calls you to this dynamic apostolate so much needed today. I bless you. Pray.” Dec. 7 1992.

The Prayers of Our Lady’s Cantons

Begin:

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Opening Prayer:

Immaculate Heart of Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth, we humbly beseech You from the bottom of our hearts to be with us this evening. Please invite Jesus, Your precious Son, sweet Mother, so that we may find shelter in His Sacred Heart. Help us with these cantons so that we may offer to You and God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, with all the choirs of Angels and all the Saints, the tribute of our devotion and love. Amen.

An Act of Perfect Surrender to Her:

Merciful Madonna I consecrate myself to Thee. Help me. I give Thee charge of my soul both now and in Eternity. Clothe me with Your Holy Mantle. Have mercy on me and grant me the gift I now ask for (to be one of Your little souls.) I beg Thee comfort me at the hour of my death and may I die in peace. Amen.

Say: – O Virgin defend me all pure and sweet. (3 times)

Prayer ask God the Holy Spirit to come

Come Holy Spirit fill the hearts of the faithful and enkindle in them the fire of Thy love. Send forth Thy spirit and they shall be created and Thou shall renew the face of the earth. 0 God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful. Grant that by the power of the Holy Spirit, we may be truly wise and courageous in following the Gospel, and use our charismatic gifts to the full, in preparing the way for the coming of Thy Kingdom. We make this prayer through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Our Father—-Hail Mary—-Glory be—

On the beads before each decade:

“Saviour of the world through Your Divine Love save us and save the whole world”

On the ten Hail Mary (small beads):

“O my Jesus I trust in Your Divine Love.”

Finish with:

I believe, I hope, and I trust in Your Divine Love.
Save us and save the whole world. (3 times)

For peace in our hearts:

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

For peace in the world

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

St Michael Prayer (leader of the heavenly army of Angels)

St. Michael, the Archangel, defend us in the hour of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God restrain him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God thrust Satan down to Hell and with him all the evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.
Now pause for a moment in silence to leave everything to God.

Recitation of the Holy Rosary (See how to Respond: the Rosary for assistence)

For the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the conversion of poor sinners

Begin with the Creed.

Before each decade read a message from the diary “Our Lady’s Message of Mercy to the World.”

After each Glory be— 0 My Jesus, forgive us our sins. Save us from the fires of Hell. Lead all souls to Heaven, especially those most in need of Thy Mercy.

“0 Sweetest of Mothers bless and protect us as we look to You for help”

Optional:

“O Virgin defend me all pure and sweet. Mary Immaculate, I beg of You, obtain pardon for me and I ask through Your Immaculate Heart save us from sin and lead all to Heaven.
Dearest Mother, with these golden chains we bind our families to Your Immaculate Heart.”

After the Hail Holy Queen, someone stands and holds a Crucifix aloft and a prayer is recited: –

The Triumph of the Holy Cross

God all-powerful, who has suffered on the tree of the Cross, be with us.
Holy Cross of Jesus Christ, have pity on us. Holy Cross of Jesus Christ, be our hope.
Holy Cross of Jesus Christ, turn away from us all sharp weapons.
Holy Cross of Jesus Christ, pour into us all good. Holy Cross of Jesus Christ, turn away from us all evil.
Holy Cross of Jesus Christ, make us well in the paths of salvation.
Holy Cross of Jesus Christ, preserve us from all spiritual and temporal accidents.
Holy Cross of Jesus Christ, may I adore Thee. Holy Cross of Jesus Christ, now and forever. Jesus of Nazareth, crucified, have pity on us. Make the invisible fly far from us now and for ever and ever. Amen.
(Holy Mary, Mother of God, St. Joseph, St. Michael the Archangel and the Holy Angels protect us.)

Now the Crucifix is kissed.

Novena for Our Lady’s intentions

To die to ourselves: To understand why Our Lady does not deal with us as we think in human terms. For all who do not seek Jesus crucified.

(You are invited to kneel.)

Holy Mary Mother of God, we consecrate ourselves and our families to You through Your Image of Peace. We give You our past, present and future. We beg of You, dear Mother, the gift of peace so much needed today for ourselves and for the whole world. May Your Image of Peace do as You have said—— “I wish this new Image should bring peace to every home, every convent, every church, hospital, school in fact I wish it bring peace wherever it is placed. Pray! I bless you.” This we ask through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

You who stand between Earth and Heaven save us, Amen.

The Magnificat.

My soul glorifies the Lord, My Spirit rejoices in God My Saviour. He looks on His servant in Her lowliness, henceforth all ages will call Me blessed. The Almighty works marvels for Me. Holy is His name. His mercy is from age to age, on those who fear Him. He puts forth His arm in strength and scatters the proud hearted. He casts the mighty from their thrones and raises the lowly. He fills the starving with good things, sends the rich away empty. He protects Israel His servant remembering His mercy, the mercy promised to our Fathers to Abraham and his sons forever.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be world without end Amen.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Our Lady invites each one to receive a personal “pearl” from the diary.
One Hail Mary -is recommended prior to opening the diary.
