24th May is the feast of Our Lady Help of Christians, Patroness of Australia - and Military Ordinariate

https://www.theworkofgod.org/Library/MaryHelp/Patronss.htm

Excerpt "The infant Church in Australia had a special reason for turning to Mary. In those early and mostly priestless days, it was largely the Rosary that kept the faith alive. Catholic Australia remained faithful to Mary, and was the first nation to choose her, under the title of Help of Christians, as principal Patroness." MORE on above link

Quote

Almighty God, deepen in our hearts 
our love of Mary Help of Christians. 
Through her prayers and under her protection, 
may the light of Christ shine over our land.
May Australia be granted harmony, justice and peace.
Grant wisdom to our leaders and integrity to our citizens.
Bless especially the men and women 
of the Australian Defence Force and their families.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Mary Help of Christians, pray for us.
