I humbly adore and thank Thee
for having created me,
and for having redeemed me by means of Jesus
I thank Thee for having made me a Christian
by giving me the true faith,
and by adopting me for Thy child in holy Baptism.
I thank Thee for having given me
time for repentance after my many sins,
and for having, as I hope,
pardoned all my offenses against Thee.
O Infinite Goodness!
I thank Thee also for having preserved me
from falling again as often as I should have done
if Thou hadst not held me up and saved me.
But my enemies do not cease to fight against me,
they until death,
that they may again have me for their slave;
If Thou dost not keep
and help me continually by Thine assistance,
I shall be wretched enough to lose Thy grace
I therefore pray Thee,
for the love of Jesus
to grant me holy perseverance till death.
Thy Son Jesus
has promised that Thou wilt grant us
whatever we ask for in His name.
By the merits, then of Jesus
I beg of Thee for myself,
and for all those who are in Thy grace,
of never more being separated from Thy love,
but that we may always love Thee
in this life
and in the next.
Mary, Mother of God, pray to Jesus
