Keep our life all spotless,
make our way secure
till we find in Jesus,

Praise to God the Father,
honor to the Son,

Amen.
Hail Mary, beloved Daughter of the Eternal Father. Hail Mary,
admirable Mother of the Son. Hail Mary, faithful Spouse of the Holy
Ghost. Hail Mary, my Mother, my loving Mistress, my powerful sovereign.
Hail, my joy, my glory, my heart and my soul. Thou art all mine by mercy,
and I am thine by justice. But I am not yet sufficiently thine. I now give
myself wholly to thee without keeping anything back for myself or others.
If thou seest anything in me which does not belong to thee, I beseech thee
to take it and make thyself the absolute Mistress of all that is mine.
Destroy in me all that may displease God; root it up and bring it to
nought. Place and cultivate in me everything that is pleasing to thee. May
the light of thy faith dispel the darkness of my mind. May thy profound
humility take the place of my pride; may thy sublime contemplation check
the distractions of my wandering imagination. May the continuous sight
of God fill my memory with His presence; may the burning love of thy
heart inflame the luke-warmness of mine. May thy virtues take the place
of my sins; may thy merits be my only adornment in the sight of God and
make up for all that is wanting in me. Finally, dearly beloved Mother,
grant if it be possible, that I may have no other spirit but thine to know
Jesus, and His Divine Will; that I may have no other soul but thine to
praise and glorify God; that I may have no other heart but thine to love
God with a love as pure and ardent as thine.
I do not ask thee for visions, revelations, sensible devotions, or
spiritual pleasures. It is thy privilege to see God clearly, it is thy privilege
to enjoy heavenly bliss; it is thy privilege to triumph gloriously in heaven
at the right hand of thy Son and to hold absolute sway over angels, men
and demons,
It is thy privilege to dispose of all the gifts of God, just as thou willest.
Such is, O heavenly Mary, the `best part’, which the Lord hast given thee,
and which shall never be taken away from thee—and this thought, fills
my heart with joy. As for my part here below, I wish for no other than that
which was thine, to believe sincerely without spiritual pleasures, to suffer
joyfully without human consolation, to die continually to myself without
respite, and to work zealously and unselfishly for thee until death, as the
humblest of thy servants. The only grace I beg thee, for me, is that every
moment of the day, and every moment of my life, I may say - «Amen, so
be it, to all that thou art doing in heaven. Amen; so be it, to all thou didst
do while on earth. Amen, so be it, to all thou art doing in my soul,» so that
thou alone mayest fully glorify Jesus in me for time and eternity. Amen.
