For the Preservation of the Deposit of the Faith!
For the Kingdom of God to come!
Behold, O Mother of God, there prostrate at Thy feet a wretched sinner who turns to Thee and puts all his trust in Thee. I do not deserve even a single glance from You, but I know that since You saw Your Son give His life for sinners, You ardently wish to help them.
O Mother of Mercy, consider my misery and have mercy on me. I hear You call to all of us the Refuge of sinners, the Hope of the unfortunate who are reduced to despair, the Help of those who are abandoned: be therefore my Refuge, my Hope and my Help; it is for You to save me through Your intercession.
For the Love of Jesus Christ, help me, extend a helping hand to an unfortunate person who, after his fall, commends himself to You so that You may help him to rise again.
I know that, whenever possible, You are pleased to come to the help of a sinner; help me, therefore, now that You are able to do so. I have lost both grace and my soul through my sins; but behold, I place myself in Your hands; tell me what I must do to recover the grace of my God, and I will do it without delay. It is He who sends me to You that You may assist me; He wants me to have recourse to Your Mercy, so that I may be helped in the great matter of my salvation, not only by the merits of Your Son, but also by Your prayers. Well then! I have recourse to You; pray for me to Your Divine Son, and manifest all the good You do to those who trust in You: I dare to hope that I will be heard.
Mon Jésus, pardon et miséricorde!
Par les mérites de Vos saintes Plaies et les douleurs de Votre sainte Mère.
My Jesus, pardon and mercy!
By the merits of Thy holy Wounds and the sorrows of Thy Mother.
