August Mother of God the Son, *
Blessed Spouse of God the Holy Ghost, *
Living temple of the Holy Trinity, *
Queen of heaven and earth, *
Seat of Divine wisdom, *
Depositary of the secrets of the Most High, *
Virgin most prudent. *
In our doubts and difficulties, *
In our tribulations and anguish, *
In our discouragements, *
In perils and temptations, *
In all our undertakings, *
In all our needs, *
At the hour of death, *
By thy Immaculate Conception, *
By thy happy Nativity, *
By thy admirable Presentation, *
By thy glorious Annunciation, *
By thy charitable Visitation, *
By thy Divine Maternity, *
By thy holy Purification, *
By the sorrows and anguish of thy maternal Heart, *
By thy precious Death, *
By thy triumphant Assumption, *

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world:
Spare us, O Lord.

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world:
Graciously hear us, O Lard.

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world:
Have mercy on us, O Lord.

V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God:
R. And obtain for us the gift of good counsel

Let us pray:

Lord Jesus, Author and Dispenser of all good, Who in becoming incarnate in the womb of the Blessed Virgin hast communicated to her lights above those of all the heavenly intelligences: grant that in honoring her under the title of Our Lady of Good Counsel we may merit always to receive from her goodness counsels of wisdom and salvation, which will conduct us to the port of a blessed eternity. Amen.






The Virgin Mother of Good Counsel
by Monsignor George F. Dillon, D.D., 1884

There is a very special reason, why, under the title of Our Lady of Good Counsel, the Mother of God should be now worshipped; for under that title She meets a special need. That need is the want of Good Counsel in the world. The devotion is, as the devotion to Jesus Christ in His Sacred Heart, and as the devotion to St. Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church, a devotion reserved for the wants of the faithful in the dangerous days coming towards the end of time. Devotion to Our Lady of Good Counsel is needed in like manner: for if it be true that to Her alone is reserved the power of crushing all heresies throughout the whole world and in all time, never was it more necessary to manifest that great power than in these days when all the streams of past error and malice unite with newer streams more deadly and wide-spread, to form a vast deluge of falsehood and error, meant by its author and his agents to wash out Christianity from the minds of men. It is the cunning of the infernal serpent, which has planned all this and made it universal. It is his power and sleepless astuteness which nurture and direct it. It is, for it must be Mary, therefore, Who is destined to crush him--to crush his head, to leave not one of his machinations disentangled and obliterated until all are effaced by Her might. It is Hers to give the world that Wisdom, and Counsel, and strength necessary for its last and most terrible combat. By her Most Pure, Virginal, and Maternal Dignity, by the immensity of Her merit and Her share in the work of Our Redemption, She must end in crushing to atoms the head of that deadly enemy of God and man, who desires to strangle Her Child in the souls of those for whom that Child died upon Calvary. --pages 509
"So let us be confident, let us not be unprepared, let us not be outflanked, let us be wise, vigilant, fighting against those who are trying to tear the faith out of our souls and morality out of our hearts, so that we may remain Catholics, remain united to the Blessed Virgin Mary, remain united to the Roman Catholic Church, remain faithful children of the Church."- Abp. Lefebvre
