Our Lady Healer of Families – Part II

Our_Lady_of_Sorrows2

Trust in the Lord in the greatest moments of darkness like Mary did.   She said yes to a pregnancy that would have the world wanting to stone her and later standing at the foot of the cross watching love die, her obedience advocated for Resurrection.   Beacon of Hope interceed for us.

I am sickened at the vile reports of Priests and Bishops who abused and covered up the abuse of children.  I say expose the light on the evil that has been done. Let a light be shown on the evil in the church and let it be eradicated.

Today is the feast of the Assumption, one pure soul who was lifted to heaven Body and Soul.  But all I can think of is Our Lady of Sorrows and how much the church, and the world need healing.

I was waiting to print these prayers because I was waiting for an imprimatur from a Bishop.  I have sent the prayers to multiple Bishops, some over a year ago, and I have yet to hear back.  Some of you may remember my original post about this.

I am printing them today for two reasons, one, if there is a Bishop out there who can read it and tell me if these prayers are without error, that is something I am looking for.  Even in the midst of this crisis, I recognize the authority of the church, and I recognize that Satan wants to bring choas to the authority of the church, hence the reason he attacked Bishops and Priests so hard.  I know there are some good Bishops out there still, and if you are out there and you read this, can you let me know if it is without error?

Second, Our Lady gave me this title in prayer, “Our Lady healer of Families”.  It is so apparent now, that not only are our own domestic families hurting and dying, but so too is the church family.  The church needs to root out evil and heal.  She wants to intercede for us, and heal our church family.   She is the road map to Trust in the Lord.

The Litany was re-written to flow better than what was written before.  We have also added a novena.  I will post both prayers here now.  Our Lady Healer of Families, please heal our Church family.

UPDATE: WE NOW HAVE APPROVAL FROM OUR DIOCESE (May 13, 2021)

OUR LADY HEALER OF FAMILIES PRAYER

O Most Immaculate Virgin, Daughter of God the Father, Spouse of the Holy Spirit,
and Mother of Jesus Christ our Savior, you are the perfect example of human
relationship with the Divine Will. Help us, O Most Holy Mother, to heal the
broken bonds within our families, our friendships, and all our other relationships.
Help us to love others the way that Christ loves us with self-sacrificing love. In
particular, heal my relationship with (state intentions here). Intercede for us O
Holy Daughter, Spouse, and Mother, so that through the mercy of God, the chains
of division will be broken, uniting us once again as you are ever united to the Most
Holy Trinity. We ask this in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the
Holy Spirit. Amen.

DAY 1

DAUGHTER OF PURITY

“And Mary said, My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.” (Luke 1:46-47)

Mary, you are a glowing light of purity and virtue for us to imitate. During your
life on earth, you remained pure in mind, body and spirit and the Holy Spirit would
find a holy dwelling place in you. Although you were predestined by the Father to
be free from the stain of original sin, you freely chose, in every moment, to live a
life of pure devotion to the Lord. It was love of the Lord that led you to choose
purity, because you knew that remaining in right relationship with the Lord would
allow you to hear the promptings of the Holy Spirit in every moment.

Our Lady Healer of Families, we turn to you today to seek guidance for all of those
who are struggling with impurity. Through your immaculate heart, safeguard their
mind, body and spirit and protect them from all degradation, corruption and
temptation.  May their hearts be softened so that they may receive the love of the

Father in such a way that He may enrich their love of charity, chastity and right
belief. Daughter of Purity, it is always your desire to loosen the chains of sin in this
world in order to bring all souls into closer union with our Heavenly Father.
Encourage us now, through the grace of the Holy Trinity, to yearn evermore for
purity in our own lives and intercede for our loved ones in this same way. May we
remain in this grace so that we will turn to prayer in our weakness, avoid occasions
of impurity, be courageous in our practice of modesty, and keep a constant
vigilance over ourselves.
DAY 2

DAUGHTER OF HOLY OBEDIENCE
“For he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden.” (Luke 1:48a)

Mary, from the moment of your Immaculate Conception, you emulated Holy
Obedience to the Father. Each and every day you emptied yourself, becoming poor
in spirit, in order to fully receive the abundance of gifts that the Lord desired to
give to you. Not rejecting any request of the Father, you faithfully obeyed and
sacrificed your own plans and desires in order to allow the Father’s Will to be done
“on earth as it is in heaven”. In this complete surrender, you found true freedom
and as a result The Word was made flesh in your womb.

Our Lady Healer of Families, today we seek your intercession for all those with
hardened hearts. Where sin and shame have blocked the way to obedience in these
souls, we ask you to gently break down these barriers, soften hearts, and allow
these souls to truly taste the goodness of the Lord. May we too continually choose
to decrease, out of reverence and love of the Lord, so that He may increase in us
and use us to bring about His Kingdom in this broken world. Daughter of Holy
Obedience, let your example of tenderness always be our guide so that we may
more effectively lead others to Jesus.

DAY 3

DAUGHTER OF HUMILITY

“For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed.” (Luke 1:48b)

Mary, O most humble of hearts, through your profound humility, the Lord looked
upon you with favor. You willingly offered all of yourself in humility and as a
result you became the Mother of God and all generations will call you blessed. By
surrendering your will to the Will of God, you allowed God to work through you in

a very powerful way and all of your deeds were done through the glory of His
name. It was through your tremendous humility, that you were exalted.

Our Lady Healer of Families, we seek your intercession for all those who struggle
with pride. We ask you to intercede for them so that they may not run away from
opportunities to exercise humility, but rather have the courage to use every
opportunity to examine themselves and embrace their need for continual
conversion of heart. Daughter of Humility, you know so well that when we attempt
to exalt ourselves, we will be humbled, but when we humble ourselves, we will be
exalted. Mary, pray for us to remain open to the hand of the Master Potter who
wants nothing more than to mold us into a beautiful work of art. May we receive
sufficient graces in order to choose humility each and every time it is being asked
of us.

DAY 4
SPOUSE OF FAITH

“For he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name.” (Luke 1:49)

Mary, within the receptiveness of your heart lay the fertile soil in which the virtue
of faith flourished. Your love of the Father was deeply rooted in the living memory
of His fidelity to His chosen people. When the Angel Gabriel appeared to you, it
was your FIAT that ushered in the full union of your spirit with the Holy Spirit,
which brought about new life. At that moment, you chose to trust in the Will of
God even when the road ahead was unclear. Fidelity to the Holy Spirit does not
come easy; it is nevertheless filled with the same love and heartache, joy and
despair, pleasure and pain of all relationships. Mary, you graciously held onto the
unrest that faith requires, without trying to control or fix things yourself. You
placed your confidence in the Lord and in that complete surrender, your faith never
wavered.

Our Lady Healer of Families, we ask that you intercede for us today on behalf of
those who are struggling to remain faithful in their relationship with the Lord or in
their relationships with one another. As the world looks inward to self gratification
as a means of lasting happiness and peace, the need for fidelity to God and one
another has become scarce in the human heart. Spouse of Faith, remind us of the
salvific value of this virtue so that we may seek it from the Father, be renewed in
it, and live it out in our lives. May we draw strength and fortitude from the Holy
Spirit so that we may remain true to our relationships, always seeking forgiveness
and restoration in the name of unity.

DAY 5
SPOUSE OF UNITY

“And his mercy is on those who fear him from generation to generation.” (Luke 1:50)

Mary, your Immaculate Heart was perpetually united to the Holy Spirit in all
things, which allowed you to live in the fullness of the Divine Will. Through a life
devoted to the Lord, you remained united to the Holy Spirit in all things. You drew
others in by your mere presence, for it was Christ in you that they were
encountering in such a real and most profound way. Through your perfect union
with the Holy Spirit, you were able to connect very intimately and deeply with
others, drawing them ever closer to the Lord.

Our Lady Healer of Families, we beseech you today, to intercede on behalf of
those who are experiencing division in their relationships. Rekindle the Flame of
Love in them through the power of the Holy Spirit so that they may turn to the
Lord and experience complete healing of their wounds. Lord we all have been
wounded and you are the Divine Healer who unites and restores us to yourself and
to one another. Pour out your mercy upon us so that we may unselfishly seek the
good of others and begin to restore all of our broken relationships. Spouse of
Unity, you live now in Heaven in perfect union, body and soul, with the Holy
Trinity. Even so, your hand is ever-extended to your children here on earth,
interceding on our behalf, and like a good mother, placing yourself in perpetual
service to us in our need. May our lives become a model of your complete union
with the Holy Trinity.
DAY 6
SPOUSE OF HOPE

“He has shown strength with his arm, he has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.” (Luke 1:51)

Mary, full of the grace of God, you remained hopeful despite the many struggles
you endured. It was your steadfast confidence in God that allowed you to patiently
wait for the promise, in joyful hope, demonstrating your unending trust in the
power of the Holy Spirit. We too are called to this same heroic hope in our own
lives. When we cling to the hope of the resurrection, despite the challenges that
may ensue, the Holy Spirit dwells within us, bringing peace in the storm. It is this
virtuous hope that keeps us on the straight and narrow path, for it enriches our
hearts and leads us into closer union with the Father.

Our Lady Healer of Families, today we seek your intercession for all who are
struggling with despair and those who find it difficult or impossible to remain
hopeful. We pray that they receive the necessary grace to entrust their hearts to the
Lord, so that through each and every act of the will, the Holy Spirit may enliven
their soul with true and lasting peace, love and joy. Spouse of Hope, our human
nature desires immediate resolution, especially in times of struggle. We pray that
our hearts will be strengthened by heavenly hope, and as a result will receive the
gifts of peace and patience.
DAY 7 
MOTHER OF TRUTH

“He has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted those of low degree” (Luke 1:52)

Mary, you received prevenient grace from the Holy Spirit at your Immaculate
Conception. Free from original sin, you were able to see clearly and understand
fully the truth, so much so that the Truth itself became flesh within your womb.
With every thought, word and deed, your life was lived out in the fullness of the
Truth. Your cooperation with the Father in the redemption of the world, through
the incarnation, life, death and resurrection of Jesus, is what we are all called to in
our own lives. May this truth always remain within us and may it fill our days with
wonder and awe of the Lord.

Our Lady Healer of Families, we ask that you wrap your mantle around all of your
children, leading them along the straight and narrow path of truth and goodness.
May we be surrounded by others whose words and deeds speak and live the
fullness of the truth. May the Holy Spirit pour out the gift of wisdom upon us,
anointing us with the fire of the love of God, so that we may share the truth with all
those we meet. Give us and those whom we lift up to you in prayer, the courage to
walk in the fullness of the truth, allowing the Spirit to renew in them their desire
for healing, holiness and righteousness.

DAY 8

MOTHER OF CHARITY

“He has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent empty away.” (Luke 1:53)

Mary, you made space for the Spirit of God to live and dwell in you through the
perpetual surrender of your own desires. You lived in a state of hunger and thirst

for the Lord, which allowed you to fully receive the charity of the Father. This gift
of love was never contained by you for your own satisfaction or your own glory,
but instead it overflowed and poured out upon all those you encountered. During
your Son’s passion and death, the Divine Charity you received up until that
moment, you gave back to Jesus in the form of steadfast courageous compassion.
O Sorrowful Mother, you reveal to us what true charity looks like as you stand at
the foot of the cross.

Our Lady Healer of Families, today we seek your intercession for those who are
holding on to feelings of anger and unforgiveness, those whose hearts are
uncharitable. As the world glorifies judgement and revenge, we ask that you give
us an abundance of compassion so that we may reach out to others who are in need
of your mercy. May we turn to the Lord to find peace; the peace that we are so
desperately seeking, but that the world cannot give.  May our hearts be filled with
charity, so that the gifts of the Holy Spirit that the Lord wants to give to us will no
longer be blocked or covered over, but will be generously shared with our neighbor
in perfect harmony.

DAY 9

MOTHER OF MERCY

“He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy, as he spoke to our
fathers, to Abraham and to his posterity for ever.” (Luke 1:54-55)

Mary, you remained in right relationship with the Father throughout the entirety of
your life, humbling yourself before the Father and keeping your eyes fixed on Him
in all things. Your soul, so full of grace, allowed you to see the world and all of
creation, all of humanity, through the merciful eyes of Christ. This free and perfect
sharing of God’s love, brought about harmony and unity in all of your encounters.
Infused with the mercy of God, every choice you made, every thought and act of
your will, was done in union with the Merciful Father, thus it was all done with
great joy and love. Mary, you stand as a perfect witness to the freedom that comes
from being deeply rooted in Divine Mercy.

Our Lady Healer of Families, today we seek your intercession for all the souls who
are turning away from the mercy of God, as well as those who believe themselves
not to be worthy of His mercy.  Mother Mary, intercede for them at this time so
that whatever bitterness or unforgiveness they are carrying in their hearts may be
washed clean through the ocean of mercy that is available to each one of us
through Christ Jesus. Guide also the souls of those who measure their dignity by
the standards of the world. Help them to realize that their worth can only be seen

with full transparency through the eyes of God, who created them, designed them
in His image and likeness, poured out upon them an abundance of spiritual gifts,
and  has given them a purpose and destiny. Mother of Mercy, many of your
children are broken, they are tired, and they have wandered far away from your
Son. They are desperately yearning to feel the love of the Father in a real way.
Through the power of the Holy Spirit, pour out Divine Mercy from the Father upon
them and lead them to your Son, who is Love and Mercy. May all of our deepest
desires be quenched by the source of everlasting life, who is Jesus Christ.
