To you, I offer my love, my life and my
service. From you, I receive graces beyond
measure and love beyond reason. I implore
you daily to look over us and to love, guide and
protect us in all that we do. Help me to
refrain from sin and from the confusion, pain
and despair that it causes.
Each day, dear Mother, I seek to follow you to
the Cross of our Lord and stand beside you as
did that disciple whom Jesus so loved. As
such, He has given you to me and me to
you. So honored am I to have you come into
my home, and so exalted is my soul to come into
yours, the holy Catholic Church. At the
Cross, you saw the wickedness of men who
committed the ultimate act of evil in the very
presence of the Mother of God herself.
Still, you so love the world that you seek to
warn us so as to save us from ourselves.
Bless me in my humble efforts to help
you spread your message and the truth of your
Son and our Lord, Jesus. Help
me to be fearless as you are fearless, kind as
you are kind, and loving as you are
loving. Please pray for me
that I might be equal to the task and forgiven
where I fall short.
