Prayer to Mary
Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary,
dwelling pure and holy, cover my soul
with your maternal protection,
so that being ever faithful to the voice of Jesus,
it responds to His love and obeys His Divine Will.
I wish, O my Mother, to keep unceasingly before me
your co-redemption in order to live intimately
with your heart that is totally united
to the Heart of your Divine Son.
Fasten me to this Heart by your own
virtues and sorrows.
Protect me always.
Prayer by Berthe Petit (a humble Franciscan Tertiary, born on January 23, 1870, in Enghien, Belgium)
