Prayer to Mary after Communion
O Mary, Virgin Guardian who so perfectly kept Jesus in You, deign to keep Him in me so that I in turn may give Him to souls.
O Mary, be there when I am not there. Speak to Him when I am not speaking to Him. Listen to Him when I am distracted. Surround Him when I am distant. Warm Him when too cold is my poor heart. Repair my inadvertent and fleeting forgetfulness. Don’t let me ever part from Him. At the hour of my death, call me, command me so that I may go and praise You eternally in heaven. Amen.
My Jesus, pardon and mercy!
By the merits of Thy holy Wounds and the sorrows of Thy Mother.
