Supplication to Our Lady
«O celestial Mother, O pure Star of Heaven, Joy of our hearts,
You who have made me know how vain worldly things are,
how great divine things are,
how sure eternal things are,
how sad hell is,
remove from sinners’ minds the darkness of error and evil.
O most sweet Mother, You who revealed to me the greatness of Your Love, the value of Your Holy Rosary, You who deigned to show me the way of prayer for sinners,
grant that our hearts may be filled with divine grace and shine with heavenly wisdom.
Pour forth the grace of Mercy, so we may attain forgiveness for our sins.
You who can do all things, O good Mother,
ask Jesus for the conversion of all poor sinners:
«They are, as others have already reminded You, our brothers and Your children, at the cost of the blood of Your dearJesus … »
We are so vulnerable, O dear Mother, and the devil rages with so much pride;
but with Your Rosary, we are certain we will defeat him.
He knows You, O Mother, and fears Your glance. Save us.
We are here at Your feet, do not despise our pleas, O Virgin, O Mother,
O Immaculate of the Holy Spirit.
We confide in You, look upon our sorrows with Your merciful eyes.
We believe in You «clothed with the sun and crowned with stars»,
Queen of the Angels and of the Saints.
You are our trust, our hope, our joy!
Do not abandon us.
Come to our aid.
You are our Mother.
We know You look upon us with tenderness. We entrust ourselves to You.
We consecrate ourselves to You, in our heart and our will, forever.
Guide us on our way, cover us with Your motherly mantle… take us by the hand.
You are our guide, our help, our refuge, our strength, our hope,
our consolation in sorrowful moments.
We will hold the Holy Rosary securely in our hands, the gift of Your Love, O Mother, in moments of trial and sorrow, and in tears, we will cry to You, O Mother dear,
O Immaculate, O Comforter of the afflicted:
«Pray for us to Your Son Jesus».
Do not leave us until You see us safe with You Above.
You are so beautiful, O Mary, You have words of Life.
Open Your arms full of goodness and grace, relieve our sorrows, do not make us wait any longer.
You are our Mother, carry us to Jesus».
(Hail, Holy Queen)
