The pearl from Medjugorje: “Little children let prayer flow from your heart like fresh water from a spring “
Loving Mother of the Redeemer
This prayer is also included in the Liturgy of the Hours. It is attributed to Hermann the Lame, a German monk who died in 1054.
Loving Mother of the Redeemer,
Gate of heaven, star of the sea,
Assist your people of have fallen yet strive to rise again.
To the wonderment of nature you bore your Creator,
yet remained a virgin after as before.
You who received Gabriel’s joyful greeting,
have pity on us poor sinners.
Medjugorje: Message of August 25, 1999 – call to prayer
“Dear children, Also today I call you to give glory to God the Creator in the colors of nature. Through the smallest flower, it speaks to you of its beauty and of the depth of the love with which it has created you. Children that prayer flows from your heart like fresh water from a spring. May the wheat fields speak to you of God’s mercy towards every creature.
Therefore renew the prayer of thanksgiving for all that it gives you. Thank you for having responded to my call . “
