“God Almighty, on this International Women’s Day, we pray for all the women in the world and the roles that they play for all humanity.
“Not only do we see in them the image of Thy Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, but also the beauty of her compassion and eternal love.
“Grant us Thy mercy and wisdom to respect and protect the weak against the wickedly strong as we walk unto Your path of righteousness and glory.
This we ask in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ. Amen.”
