Dear Blessed Mother Thrice Admirable, Queen and Victress of Schoenstatt, visit us your children. Walk among us, comfort us, care for us, and heal our hearts with your motherly love.  Bring Jesus into our homes our Domestic Church, into the homes of our dear ones who are sick, into our hospitals and nursing homes, into our schools, and everywhere where you and Jesus are needed.  Distribute the Three Pilgrimage Graces of the Shrine to warm our cold hearts, to renew us in our faith, and to deepen our personal love for Jesus your Son. With the Three Pilgrimage Graces, educate us and form us into the New Persons in the New Community. Intercede for us that the wide halls of the holy Church be filled again to the praise and glory of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.  Amen.
