In the crosses of life that come to us, Jesus offers us opportunities to help Him redeem the world. Let us profit by his generosity.
~ Ven. Fr. Solanus Casey, Capuchin

St Luke painted this Icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help, probably while she was still alive. He must have interviewed Mary for the “Infancy narratives” of Jesus Christ, her son. This Icon is very, very old, since the beginning of the Church. The name of this Icon is: “Mother of Perpetual Help.” her Feast Day is Today: June 27.
Traditional Prayer to Our Mother of Perpetual Help
O God, Who hast willed that the Mother of Thine Only-begotten Son should be the perpetual succor of Christians on earth, grant us grace to call on her with confidence in all our necessities of soul and body, so that, saved through her protection and assistance, we may be brought to the everlasting vision of Thy glory in Heaven, through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
Consecration to Our Lady of Perpetual Help
DESIRING to consecrate myself entirely to the service of the ever Blessed Virgin Mary, from whom, after God, I expect all help and assistance in life and in death, I unite myself to the members of the pious archconfraternity, which has been erected in honor of Our Mother of Perpetual Help.
As my special patron I choose the the glorious Saint Alphonsus, that he may obtain for me a true and lasting devotion to the ever Blessed Virgin, Who is honored by so sweet a name.
I promise moreover, to renew my consecration to the Mother of God and to Saint Alphonsus at least once each month, and frequently to receive the Holy Sacraments.
Mother of Perpetual Help, receive me as thy servant, and grant that I may ever experience thy constant motherly protection. I promise to have recourse to thee in all my spiritual and temporal necessities.
My holy patron, Saint Alphonsus, obtain for me the grace of an ardent love for Jesus Christ and the grace of invoking our Mother of Perpetual Help. Amen.
Saint Luke, the Evangelist, who wrote the Gospel of St Luke, had to have “Interviewed” Mary, for her “Infancy Narratives of Jesus.” Mary had to have been okay with this painting he did of Mary and Baby Jesus, called “Mother of Perpetual Help.” Recall, Jesus gave us His Mother, to be Our Own, as He was dying on His Cross, “Behold your mother.” We would do well to listen to Jesus and obey. His last will was to give us, His Mother, to be Our Mother. Don’t ever question or doubt His Words. June 27th, is Our Mother of Perpetual Help’s Feast Day. St Luke painted this Icon of Our Lady.

Most Holy Virgin Mary
who willing to inspires me with the fullest of confidence, and has been willing to take the sweet name of
Mother of Perpetual Help
I (mention your name) acknowledge that my sins render me unworthy to be admitted among the number of your privileged children. Nevertheless, desirous of enjoying your merciful favor, I cast myself at your feet and, humbly prostrate before you, I consecrate to you my heart in order that, after God, I may love you above all things.
O my Sovereign Lady, deign to receive me among the number of your favored children, take me under your protection, help me in all my spiritual and temporal wants, but especially at the hour of my death. O Mother of Perpetual Help, I know that you love me more than I can love myself, therefore I entrust all my interests to your care; dispose of me, and all that belongs to me, according to your good pleasure.
O my Mother, bless me, and by your powerful intercession support my weakness, so that having been faithful in serving you during this life, I may praise you, love you, and thank you eternally in the next.
I mowed my neighbor’s yard yesterday because he’s on vacation. So, I am a bit tired, already. My yard is a 5 hour job, plus stacking wood, the gang scattered.
I already prayed my Morning Prayers and Morning Offering, for the gang’s conversions. Although some days I’d like to whoop their butts – legally I cannot do that.
Boy oh boy I could do these chores faster, and with more energy, when I was young. But, God will provide the strength. “Jesus, I trust in You!“
I prayed for everybody, so I’m almost ready to mow. Have a great day, evening or night.

" The “door of faith” (Acts 14:27) is always open for us, ushering us into the life of communion with God and offering entry into his Church. It is possible to cross that threshold when the word of God is proclaimed and the heart allows itself to be shaped by transforming grace. To enter through that door is to set out on a journey that lasts a lifetime." Benedict XVI
