From Prayers
Jump to: navigation, search

O Most Holy Virgin,

and Our Mother,

we listen with grief to the complaints

of your Immaculate Heart

surrounded with the thorns placed therein

at every moment by the blasphemies

and ingratitude of ungrateful humanity.

We are moved by the ardent desire

of loving you as Our Mother

and of promising a true devotion

to Your Immaculate Heart.


We therefore kneel before You

to manifest the sorrow we feel

for the grievances that people cause You,

and to atone by our prayers

and sacrifices for the offenses

with which they return your love.

Obtain for them

and for us the pardon of so many sins.

Hasten the conversion of sinners

that they may love Jesus Christ

and cease to offend the Lord,

already so much offended.

Turn your eyes of mercy toward us,

that we may love God

with all our heart on earth

and enjoy Him forever in Heaven.
