Lord our God, you sent your only Son
to bring peace to our world.
Through the intercession
of Blessed Mary ever-Virgin,
hear our earnest prayer;
grant that our times may be tranquil,
so that we may live in peace as one family,
united in love for one another.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.
Collect, Masses of the BVM: The Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of Peace
