To ask for the resignation which obtains Heaven

Prayer by Father Thomas of Jesus, great devotee of the Redeemer’s Passion.

O most Holy Mother of God, Queen of Angels, Star of the Sea, Refuge of Sinners, who with great sorrow saw Him to whom You gave life die, and who awaited with firm faith and sure hope the moment of His resurrection, grant that I may be crucified with Him, that He may receive me among His people, that I may die, live and reign with Him.
O Saints of Paradise, who today contemplate this divine Lamb, glorious, impassive, immortal, and who possess Him with the assurance of never losing Him, cast your eyes upon me, have mercy on this poor exile, obtain for him the grace to be crucified on earth with Jesus Christ, and to be crowned by Him in Heaven.
