Hail, Infant Mary,
full of grace,
is with thee,
blessed art thou forever,
and blessed are thy holy parents
Joachim and Ann,
of whom thou wast miraculously born.
Mother of God,
intercede for us.
We fly to thy patronage,
holy and amiable Child Mary,
despise not our prayers
in our necessities,
but deliver us from all dangers,
glorious and blessed Virgin.
V. Pray for us, holy Child Mary.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us Pray:
O almighty and merciful God,
Who through the cooperation of the Holy Ghost,
didst prepare the body and soul
of the Immaculate Infant Mary
that she might be the worthy Mother of Thy Son,
and didst preserve her from all stain,
grant that we who venerate with all our hearts
her most holy childhood,
may be freed,
through her merits and intercession,
from all uncleanness of mind
and be able to imitate her perfect humility,
obedience and charity.

and not as I may choose.
Do not punish me, I beseech Thee,
by granting that which I wish
or ask if it offended Thy Love,
which would always live in me.
Let me die to myself,
so that I may love Thee. ... continue reading
