Feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Help

Today, June 27, is the feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Help!  We wrapped up the novena last night, and continue to pray for her intercession as we approach the baby's due date.  What a reassurance it is to know that Our Lady will always look after and care for us, if we are only willing to ask for that help!

Almighty and merciful God, Who has given us an image of Thy Most Blessed Mother to venerate under the title of Perpetual Help, graciously grant that among all the variabilities of our way of life we may be constantly protected by the same Immaculate and ever-Virgin Mary, so that we may be worthy of Thy eternal redemption.

Did you know that you can view a live video streaming of the icon of Our Lady of Perpetual Help?  The Redemptorist priests who care for the icon and promote devotion to Our Lady under this title have set up a website where you can view the icon, submit prayer requests, and more!  The National Catholic Register has an article about the icon and the website here.
