A Lay Apostles Prayer

Many are calling for the laity to be the chief investigators into the crisis in the Church.  Here is something to consider:

The Eternal Father sent the Angel Gabriel to the Blessed Virgin Mary and she conceived by the Holy Spirit!  She became the first Christian and the Mother of Jesus who is God!  Technically, Mary is the  lead lay person.   Mary loves God the Father as a daughter, Mary loves God the Son as mother, and Mary loves God the Holy Spirit as bride.

Over the last 250 years Mary has been given the gift to appear to many of the laity, especially women, children and youth.  She has been trying to rally us, to wake us up to the dangers of SIN and the radical possibility of the loss of our eternal souls.

In the interest of the laity fulfilling their role in the the Church, I'd like to offer for your use, a prayer I composed about ten  years ago after studying the Catechism's teaching on the laity. I have named it “A Lay Apostles Prayer.”
I am using the word apostle here…
