Railroad Workers and
Their Families Pray to Our Lady
Railroad workers and their families pray to Our Lady
of the Railroad for her constant mercy, asking her to
keep them free from harm as they go about their work.
Many Catholic railroad employees wear Our Lady of the
Railroad jewelry as a symbol of their faith in the Blessed
Virgin and her power to watch over them.
The Dangers Railroad Workers Face
In today's world, the threat of violence by terrorist
attacks and hijackers are ever present. The aid of Our
Lady of the Railroad is an added source of peace to
the railroad workers who deal with public transportation.
They never know when an accident or tragedy might occur.
Wearing an Our Lady of the Railroad medal gives them
the courage to go to work each day. Many of the family
members of railroad workers and commuters also wear
an Our Lady of the Railroad pendant, hoping for Mary's
Prayer to Our Lady for Strength, Courage,
Blessed Virgin Mary, who can worthily repay you with
praise and thanks for having rescued a fallen world
by your generous consent! Receive our gratitude, and
by your prayers obtain the pardon of our sins. Take
our prayers into the sanctuary of heaven and enable
them to make our peace with God.
Holy Mary, help the miserable, strengthen the discouraged,
comfort the sorrowful, pray for your people, plead for
the clergy, intercede for all women consecrated to God.
May all who venerate you feel now your help and protection.
Be ready to help us when we pray, and bring back to
us the answers to our prayers. Make it your continual
concern to pray for the people of God, for you were
blessed by God and were made worthy to bear the Redeemer
of the world, who lives and reigns forever. Amen. -
Augustine of Hippo
