Prayer from the Legion of Mary Tessera

Picture source

Confer, O Lord, on us, 
who serve beneath the stand of Mary  
that fullness of faith in you and trust in her, 
to which it is given to conquer the world.  
Grant us a lively faith, 
animated by charity, 
which will enable us to perform all our actions from the motive of pure love of you, 
and ever to see you and serve you in our neighbour; 
a faith, firm and immovable as a rock, 
through which we shall rest tranquil and steadfast amid the crosses, toils, and disappointments of life; 
a courageous faith which will inspire us 
to undertake and carry out without hesitation 
great things for your glory and for the salvation of souls; 
a faith which will be our Legion's Pillar of Fire - 
to lead us forth united - 
to kindle everywhere the fires of divine love 
- to enlighten those who are in darkness and in the shadow of death 
- to inflame those who are lukewarm
 - to bring back life to those who are dead in sin; 
and which will guide our own feet in the way of peace; 
so that - the battle of life over 
- our Legion may reassemble, 
without the loss of any one, in the kingdom of your love and glory.  Amen.
