Sweet Child Mary,
destined to be the Mother of God
and our sovereign and loving Mother,
by the prodigies of grace
you lavish upon us,
mercifully listen to my humble supplications.
In the needs which press upon me from every side
and especially in my present tribulation,
I place all my trust in you.
O Holy Child,
by the privileges granted to you alone
and by the merits which you have acquired,
be merciful to me this day.
Show that the source of spiritual favours
and the continuous benefits
which you dispense are inexhaustible,
because your power with the Heart of God
Deign through the immense profusion of graces
with which the Most High has enriched you
from the first moment of your Immaculate Conception,
grant me, O Celestial Child, my petition,
and I shall eternally praise the goodness of your Heart
May Christ support us all the day long,
till the shadows lengthen,
and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed,
and the fever of life is over
and our work is done.
Then in his mercy
may he give us a safe lodging,
and holy rest and peace at the last.
Amen. continue reading
