By St Louis de Montfort (1673-1716)
My powerful Oueen, you are all mine through your mercy. and I am all yours.
Take away from me all that may displease God and cultivate in me all that is pleasing to Him.
May the light of your faith dispel the darkness of my mind. your deep humility take the place of my pride.
Your continual sight of God fill my memory with His presence.
May the first of the love of your heart inflame the lukewarmness of my own heart.
May your virtues take the place of my sins.
May your merits be my enrichment and make up for all that is wanting in me before God.
My beloved Mother, grant that I may have no other spirit but your spirit, to know Jesus Christ and His Divine will and to praise and glority the Lord. That I may love God with burning love like yours.
