Prayer to Our Lady of the Milk


Our Lady of the Milk

Lovely Lady of The Milk, most loving mother of the Child Jesus, and my mother, listen to my humble prayer.

Your motherly heart knows my every wish, my every need.

To you only, His spotless Virgin Mother, has your Divine Son given to understand the sentiments which fill my soul.

Yours was the sacred privilege of being the Mother of the Savior.

Intercede with him now, my loving Mother, that, in accordance with His will, I may become the mother of other children of our heavenly Father.

This I ask, O Lady of The Milk, in the Name of your Divine Son, My Lord and Redeemer.



Is considered sacred because the Holy Family took refuge there before their flight into Egypt to escape King Herod’s slaughter of the innocent firstborns.

It is said that while Mary was nursing Jesus, a drop of milk fell to the ground, turning the cave white.

The history of the devotion to the Mother of Jesus under the title of Our Lady of THE MILK may have roots in a 4th Century grotto in Bethlehem. To this day the Franciscan community maintains a shrine there called the Milk Grotto. Its centerpiece is the Blessed Virgin nursing the infant Jesus.

Many ask for the blessings of motherhood, beseeching the intercession of Our Lady that God will grant them a safe and happy delivery, and healthy, holy children. All who visit the Shrine find it to be a place of spiritual comfort and renewal.

For nine days, husbands and wives are asked to pray together the third of the joyful mysteries of the rosary, meditating on the birth of the Lord Jesus, then drink water or milk mixed with a speckle of the powder.
