Blessed Virgin who, under the title of Repose,
reminds us of the succoring pity
with which your maternal heart is open to your children,
hear our prayer!
Through your powerful intercession, O Mary,
may minds and hearts find repose in abandoning themselves
to the Will
of the Heavenly Father,
in the consciousness

in divine promises,
in the hope

watchful against hostile forces;
repose for the pure,
away from worldly corruption.
And as through you we shall have had peace in this life,
so, at the end of our pilgrimage in time,
we shall enjoy peace for ever and ever.
