Prayer to Our Lady

The Blessed Mother's mother of the Church, mother of Jesus, and our mother as Jesus gave her to us from the cross. By her "yes" to God asking her to be the mother of his Son, she symbolically crushed the head of satan so that Christ could overpower him by his suffering, death, and resurrection. Here is a prayer to Our Lady which is a powerful one to aid us in our conversion:

"Our Lady, you who crushed the ancient serpent's head, crush under your feet every sense of fear, evil, sin, and despondency, and by the power of the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, free the sinners and grant them pardon and peace."
