Happy Independence Day!

In 1847 the Catholic bishops of the United States consecrated our country to the Immaculate Conception.

O my God, through the intercession of Mary, have mercy on the United States of America. Grant us peace. Have mercy on our president and on all the officers of our government. Grant us a fruitful economy, born of justice and charity. Have mercy on capital and industry and labor. Protect the family life of the nation. Guard the precious gift of religious vocations. Have mercy on the sick, the tempted, sinners and on all who are in need.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.
