The backgrounds for the prayers for others are some of the many pictures of Mary in the Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth. These have been donated by nations around the world and usually depict Mary as having their own racial characteristics and sometimes dress. We have tried to match the colours of Mary’s costume with the colours of the prayers.

There are two sets of PowerPoint slides to go with these prayers. The first has full text of the prayers over the pictures of Mary, the second has just the mention of the colour and the prompt and response.
