Month of Mary

Month of May – Month of Mary: Listen on YouTube

My name  Samanthi, the marigold flower is “Mary’s gold”. And I begin the month of May with a dedication to our Blessed Mother Mary


Song of Marigold

Our Lady of eternal grace
In your ever loving embrace
A lasting peace is upon me
Love of Christ surrounds me

Our Lady of eternal grace
How beautiful is your holy face
Holy mother I return to thee
With your light help me see

Our Lady of eternal grace
Blessed lilies touch my face
As I was made in your name
Make me golden once again

Our Lady of eternal grace
In the fullness of God’s grace
As your flower and holy flame
Let me bloom to praise His name

Angel Force

Golden shafts
Extending down
From the heavens
Enclose the seeker
Of the Angel force

Saint Michael himself
Shows up to answer
The imploring prayer
Of a faithful believer

New Life

Lord I come before You today

with all the dreams I hold within

I surrender all to You

from the deepest recesses of my heart

The frozen seeds that never saw the light

for You and only You

can breathe new life into anything

Great Archangel

Prayer to St. Michael

Saint Michael, great Archangel
Guardian of all God’s children
Heavenly protector, defend us
Shield us in the name of Jesus

Queen of Angels

queen-of-angelsShe rides with me – the beautiful Mother

Even in my solitude – a friend like no other

She crowns my hopes – with joys yet unseen

And brings to pass – each anointed dream

She tells me to smile – when I want to cry

The Queen of Angels – she lifts me up high

Thank you St. Anne

Thanksgiving Prayer to Saint Anne

In your sanctuary great intentions we kept
In jubilation we sang and in grief we wept
Patroness of youthful dreams fulfilled
With grateful love our hearts are filled
