 Opening Prayer

Praised be to you, O Blessed Virgin of the Poor! And praised be He who deigned to send you to us, What you have been and are us to now, you will always be to those who, like us, and better than us offer you their faith and their prayer. You are our refuge as what you have promised and revealed at Banneux:

Mediatrix of all graces, Mother of God, a compassionate and powerful Mother who loves the poor and all the people, who alleviates sufferings, who saves individuals and all mankind. Queen and Mother of all Nations, you came to rescue all those who seek refuge in you and allow yourself to be our guide by leading us to Jesus, the source of Eternal Life. Amen.

 

Our Lady of the Poor, we believe in you, May you believe in us.

ACT OF CONTRITION

Lord Jesus Christ, true God and true Man, I am sorry for all the things I have done to you.

You are my God, Lord and Father to us, I love you more than I treasure all the things in this world. I am heartily sorry for offending you and I resolve not to offend you again and I totally resign to your merciful love by confessing my sins.

I earnestly hope that through your most adorable passion and dying on the cross, I may receive pardon and be included again to your Kingdom. Amen.

CLOSING SONG: MOTHER OF CHRIST

HYMNS TO OUR LADY OF THE POOR
INA NG MGA DUKHA
(Theme Song)

Composed by: Fr. Joselito I. Jopson

O Ina, iniibig ang aba


Narito ang puso naming alay
Ilapit sa paanan ng ating panginoon
Kundi sa yo, saan pa kami tutungo?

“Birhen ng mga dukha” ang yong pangalan
Kayganda’t katangi-tangi sa lahat
Iisa ang kayamanang nasa yong kamay
Si Hesus, aming tagapagligtas.

REFRAIN:

O Ina,
Ihandog ang aming alay sa ‘ting D’yos
Ang mga gawang pinagpaguran ng tao
Binuo ng pawis at kamay na sugatan
O Ina, malugod na tanggapin mo na
Maria, Ina ng mga dukha, aming Ina.

Birhen ng mga dukha ang aming Reyna
Ang bukal ng biyaya sa lahat
Puksain ang sakit at kahirapan ng madla
Pag-isahin ang iyong mga anak.

LOVELY LADY
Composed by Fr. Albino D. Madrazo III
Arranged by Fr. Joselito I. Jopson

REFRAIN :

Lovely Lady, Virgin of the Poor,
Health to the sick, comfort the pain
And suff’rings that we endure
Lovely Lady, joy of those who mourn
Help us to rise after each fall,
Lead us to Christ our Lord.

I. Mother of God, mother of men
We ask you to teach us to pray
Sitting beside our Lord Jesus Christ
Guide us to know what to say.

Virgin most pure, heart undefiled
You’re overflowing with love.
Free us from sin, make pure our hearts
And please God from up above.


II. God’s chosen bride, angel’s delight
Hail, you are filled with grace!”
Give us the strength to walk in this world
To welcome your loving embrace
Light up our path, touch our hearts
Give hope to people we meet
Help us be one and serve till one day
There’s joy ‘cause it’s Jesus we see!
