Our Lady of Walsingham



Prayer to Our Lady of Walsingham

O Mary, recall the solemn moment
when Jesus, your divine Son,
dying on the cross
confided us to your maternal care.

You are our Mother;
we desire ever to remain your devout children.

Let us therefore feel the effects
of your powerful intercession with Jesus Christ.

Make your name again glorious in this place,
once renowned throughout our land
by your visits, favours and many miracles.


Pray, O Holy Mother of God,

for the conversion of England,
restoration of the sick,
consolation for the afflicted,
repentance of sinners,
peace to the departed.

O Blessed Mary, Mother of God,
Our Lady of Walsingham,
intercede for us. Amen

One Response to Our Lady of Walsingham

  1. Roger says:

    My delight was to renew The Consecration of England to Our Lady (Pope Leo XIII) and St Peter as well as Our Crowned Lady Of Walsingham.
    Our Lady’s Dowry in my humble opinion is for Britain not just England. BRITAIN thats all these Isles.

    Pope Leo XIII – England, Our Lady’s Dowry
    On the feast of Sts Peter and Paul, 1893, the bishops of England and Wales, in response to the wishes of the Pope, consecrated England to the Mother of God and St Peter in the Oratory Church in London. The action was a direct result of an audience with Pope Leo XIII in which he recalled that this country had long been known as Our Lady’s Dowry, thereby giving papal approval to what had been a hallowed tradition and instigating an act not without significance for our own time.
    The Pope spoke of “the ‘wonderful filial love which burnt within the hearts of your forefathers towards the get Mother of God… to whose service they consecrated themselves with such abundant proofs of devotion, that the Kingdom itself acquired the singular title of Mary’s Dowry.” He also recalled the special devotion paid to St Peter as the principal patron of the country. He desired that this devotion to these “two patrons of the faith” and ‘guardians of all virtue” be revived and a new consecration made by a solemn rite. He foresaw it bringing great benefit on the people at that time which marked a new beginning for the Catholic Faith in England.
