Prayer to Our Lady of the Airways Protectress of Aviation


O MARY, Our Lady of the Airways, my Heavenly Mother,

I place myself under your guidance and protection

upon this journey which I am about to undertake,

and I ask that with your heavenly aid and upon the Winds of the Wind

that this earthly journey may be brought to safe landing.

May I also ask that upon the Wings of Prayer,

and through your heavenly intercession that my last journey in this life

may end at the Eternal Airport of Life Everlasting with you

and your Divine Son in Heaven.
