O Mary, give us attentive, humble and gentle hearts
able to welcome with tenderness and compassion
all the poor that you send us.
Give us hearts full of mercy
able to love and serve, and quench all divisions
and to see in our suffering and broken brothers
the presence of the living Jesus.
Lord, bless us from the hand of your poor;
Lord, smile to us through the eyes of your poor;
Lord, receive us one day
in the blessed company of your poor.
