Mother of God ~ In a Time of Global Sadness and Trial




The Virgin Mary's name appears in the Quran many more times than in the entire New Testament. Indeed, the entire 19th Chapter of the Quran  is dedicated to the life of Miryam. Here is a litany prayer I created incorporating some of the many lovely titles Islam bestows upon Mary. The icon is from the East, Mother of God ~ Softener of Evil Hearts. We pray for the conversion of those who do evil things in God's name.

Virgin Mary ~ who was chosen, pray for us.
Virgin Mary ~ who fasts, pray for us.
Virgin Mary ~ who bows down to God in worship, pray for us.
Virgin Mary ~ who prostrates herself before God, pray for us.
Virgin Mary ~ who confirms the truth, pray for us.

Virgin Mary ~ who has faith, pray for us.
Virgin Mary ~ who believes completely, pray for us.
Virgin Mary ~ who personifies contemplation, pray for us.
Virgin Mary ~ who softens evil hearts, pray for us.
Virgin Mary ~ moisture laden cloud, pray for us.
