Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

Mary, Protector of the Unborn, pray for us


Roberto Ferruzzi 

found on one of my holy cards:

Prayer to Mary

Put my babe under your protection, Mary, my Mother. Make its tiny mind grow up to love the truths of the faith; consecrate its will to the service of God; fill its heart with love for its Creator. Fashion its little body in all perfection; let its organs be sound, its senses acute, all its members be strong and healthy. You can obtain this favor for me and my child, most powerful Mother. I put my trust in you. Amen

The story behind the painting found here.



  1. Thanks for the link to the back story on the painting-I never knew all that! But have always loved the depiction of "Madonna of the Streets".

  2. What a great prayer for protection of our children. I said it for my son!

  3. I didn't know the story until this morning myself, FSM.

    Sweet, isn't it, Jenny?

    It is a great prayer, Noreen. Even for the grown ones!

  4. Beautiful prayer! Thank you for posting it.


I appreciate your comments -- sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself!
