Holy Mary, Mother of God!

Holy Mother,
our life in this world is such a mess,
I am afraid even to talk of it, but since now
we cannot deal with it ourselves,
I beg you to tell your son our Lord in heaven
something about it.

Holy Mother,
just as our Lord prayed his Father from the cross
to forgive people
because they did not know what they were doing,
I beg you to pray earnestly your son our Lord in heaven
to forgive all these nations
clamoring here in the chaos of the seven sins.

Holy Mother,
as you kept on at your son
at the marriage in Cana
until he changed the water into wine,
I beg you keep on at your son our Lord in heaven
like any human mother,
to straighten out our life in this world.
