From Mr F.P.Smith Sir. With poor Mass attendances and a general lowering of moral standards. should we not turn to Our Lady for help? We have such a wonderful example of her intercession in the earlier part of the last century. At the end of Low Mass everyone recited three Hail Marys for the conversion of Russia. which at the time was under atheistic communism. the leaders determined to completely stamp out Christianity.
Could we not revert to some simple prayer to stop the slide towards even worse lowering of present standards?
Perhaps the recital of the Mernorare or even the Ave Maria in Latin at the end of Low Mass might be an idea.
Yours faithfully, F.P. SMITH Stanmore, Middx
