2nd Wk of Advent: Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patron of the Americas

O God, Father of mercies,
who placed your people under the singular protection
of your Son's most holy Mother, 
grant that all who invoke the Blessed Virgin of Guadalupe,
may seek with ever more lively faith
the progress of people in the ways of justice and of peace. 
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, 
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
