All Holy and ever-living God, in giving us Jesus Christ to be our Saviour and Brother, you gave us Mary, His Mother, to be our Mother also; grant us, we pray you, that we may be worthy of so great a Brother and so dear a Mother.  May we may come at last to you the Father of us all, through Jesus Christ Your Son, Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.  Amen.
