For the Preservation of the Deposit of the Faith!
For the Kingdom of God to come!
O Mother of Mercy, since You are so compassionate, and since You have such a great desire to do good to us, miserable sinners, and to grant us what we ask You, I, the most miserable of all men, come to implore Your goodness; deign to hear me. Let others ask You for all that they will want, health, goods and temporal advantages; for me, O Mary, I ask You what You yourself wish to find in me, what is most in conformity and most pleasing to Your Most Holy Heart.
You are so humble; obtain for me, therefore, humility and the love of scorn. You have been so patient in the sorrows of this life; obtain for me patience in the adversities. You are so full of love for God; obtain for me the gift of holy and pure love. You are so full of charity for your neighbour; obtain for me charity towards all, especially towards those who are opposed to me. You have always been united to the Will of God; obtain for me complete conformity to all the provisions of Providence which concern me.
In a word, You are the holiest of all creatures; O Mary, make me holy. You do not lack love, You can and You want to procure for me all the goods; the only thing that can prevent me from receiving Your graces is either my negligence in invoking You, or my little trust in Your intercession; But these two essential dispositions, fidelity to invoke You and trust in You, it is You who must obtain them for me, and it is from You that I ask for them, it is from You that I want them, it is from You that I hope for them, and I await them from You with assurance, O Mary, my Mother, my Hope, my Love, my Life, my Refuge, my Help and my Consolation!
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.
