Prostrated at thy feet, and
humiliated by my sins, but full of confidence in thee, O Mary! I beg
thee to accept the petition my heart is going to make. It is for my last
moments, Dear Mother I wish to request the protection and maternal love
so that in the decisive instant thou will do all thy love can suggest in
To thee, o Mother of my soul, I consecrate the last two hours of my
life. Come to my side to receive my last breath and when death has cut
the thread of my days, tell Jesus, presenting to Him my soul, "I love
it". That word alone will be enough to procure for me the benediction of
my God and the happiness of seeing thee for all eternity.
I put my trust in thee, My Mother and hope it will not be in vain.
O Mary! Pray for thy child and lead him to Jesus! Amen.
