The prayer from Jasna Góra: „with Mary – helper of Mankind”
Prayer for those whose salvation is at stake.
Origins of the work
The Community “ with Mary – helper of Mankind” originated as a response to the desires of the heart of Jesus and Mary, and is immersed in the Church’s mission, “ to save.”(cf. Jn. 3. 16-17) Jesus Christ saves the world. His name means God saves. In receiving His body of the Virgin Mary, He suffered for our sins, and sin in his body was defeated. Jesus rose from the dead, ascended into heaven is seated at the right hand of God and is King and Lord. God wants to save all people. As disciples of Jesus we have the same desire as he does: we want to help Him in his mission of salvation in this time around the world. She was the first student of Jesus- She listened and accepted His word to the end. We want to help Mary Mother of the Church by putting Her at its disposal. She is the model of the Holy Church, of which Jesus is the head. In Fatima Our Lady asked:«Sacrifice for sinners and say often, especially if you will for the victim: Oh Jesus, I do so out of love for you, for the conversion of sinners and for reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary». Children of Fatima saw in a vision of hell, the souls of sinners going to perdition. Hear from Mary that God wants to save those souls. God wants the world to spread the devotion of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
What does the Community do?
A spiritual Community of people dedicated to Mary, who daily pray for the conversion of people. Each Member of the community is praying for the salvation of a person chosen by God. The Community wants to be present in all areas of human life. Its members can meet together to recite the Rosary, participate in the Eucharist, read Scripture and meditate.
How long can you pray to God?
It depends on you, Your commitment and inspiration that you receive from God. Remember that Your Prayer is very needed- to obtain many graces.
When Praying for someone’s conversion, you must constantly keep in mind that you also need conversion (por. Luke 18, 10-14). Never in your thoughts, or words specify the word : “sinner”. You are not sure why He/ she is lost and they do not have to be greater sinners than you. Pray with the knowledge that this unknown person can be yourself. You are not sure what lies ahead in your life. Therefore, pray for more faith and loyalty to God. Your prayer will be an act of merciful love if you harbored a deep belief that you too are blessed (see. John Paul II, the “Dives in Misericordia”). Don’t limit your concern for the conversion of this unknown person for you to refuse a short prayer. This person God has given you, so that by your prayer you will contribute to their Salvation. The memory of this must be present every time you pray. And when you both meet in Heaven, it will be your joy.
If you forget or you to a break from the prayer?
Don’t get discouraged when one day you forget about the prayer. If forgetting too often and after taking a break from prayer: Ask God in time to let you see the error of your ways. Maybe your prayer intentions weren’t truthful about your-self, or perhaps you deem that you are better than the one for whom you pray? After some time, try praying, asking God for the grace needed to persevere and to have fidelity to this prayer.
