Mary, Take Over!  
Mary, take over!
by Denis and Suzel Bourgerie

Success is not a question of luck, but rather a question of family!

[All people, every person who exists, has ever existed, and ever will exist] [has] the privilege of having Mary as [their] Mother, and being able to say, "Mary, take over and resolve what I am not able to resolve. Take care of those things that are beyond my reach. You have the power to do so. Who can ever say that he was disappointed in you after having called you?"

Dear brothers and sisters, when Jesus gave His Mother to John at the foot of the Cross, He was giving us one of the most beautiful gifts that we could receive in our lives: Mary. He gave His Mother so that She could also be ours, so that we could always count on her saying, Mary, take over!

Therefore, whatever problems you may be having, do this:

Ask your Mother Mary to take over.

Mother, take over at this moment when I see nothing, when there does not seem to be any light in the tunnel, this moment of doubt, fear, this hour of making the right decision when everything seems to be going against me. I give you permission to resolve for me. what I cannot. Take over and take care of the difficulties that I must face and those things I cannot see. You have the power to do this.

Mary, take over when I speak with my children, when I talk with my spouse.

Take over when I go to work, when I drive my car. Take over when I must receive news, when the doctor will diagnose or perform surgery.

Defend me, protect me, take care of me.

Take over, Mother; touch and warm with your maternal love the hardened hearts that I will encounter along the way. You are the Star that announces the Sun! Thanks to you, everyone feels its warmth.

Thank you, Loving Mother, without whom there would be no victory. Mary, invincible courage of Christ's athletes, pillar of fire that guides them through the night, Dawn of Good News, take over today and always. AMEN.
