CCW Our Lady of Good Counsel


Prayer to Our Lady of Good Counsel

O Lord of heavenly wisdom, who has given us your own Mother Mary to be our guide and counselor in this our life, grant that in all things we may have the grace to seek her maternal instruction and to profit by it in humility and love.

O Mother of Good Counsel, Patroness of the National Council of Catholic Women, help us to understand and fulfill the mind and will of your Divine Son, Jesus Christ. Under the blessing of the Father, and by the power of the Holy Spirit, may we be responsible and intelligent daughters of the Church. May we labor in the spirit of renewal to realize more perfectly the Kingdom of God here below as the only true preparation for our share in the Kingdom of Heaven. And may we, in all we think or do or say, be filled with the same love of God and neighbor that overflows from your own Immaculate Heart. Amen



Hymn:  Our Lady of Good Cousel

OurLady of Good Counsel, to thee we pledge our love;
Through thee to your divine Son, Who reigns in heav'n above.
Through thee to your divine Son, Who reigns in heav'n above.
United Catholic women beneath your banner blue,
This hallowed land of Florida we dedicate to you!
This hallowed land of Florida we dedicate to you!
