Most holy and immaculate Virgin,
Mother of Jesus and our loving Mother,
being his Mother,
you shared in His universal kingship.
The prophets and angels proclaimed Him King of peace.
With loving fervor in our hearts
we salute and honor you as Queen of peace.
We pray that your intercession
may protect us and all people from hate and discord,
and direct our hearts into the ways of peace and justice
which your Son taught and exemplified.
We ask your maternal care for our Holy Father
who works to reconcile the nations in peace.
We seek your guidance for our Head of State
and other Leaders as they strive for world peace.
Glorious Queen of peace,
grant us peace in our hearts,
harmony in our families
and concord throughout the world.
as patroness of our beloved country,
watch over us and protect us
with your motherly love.
