O most blessed Virgin Mary,
mother most loving and most merciful,
I, a miserable and unworthy sinner come before thee,
with the heartfelt prayer,
that of thy loving kindness
thou wouldst vouchsafe graciously to be near me
and all who throughout the whole Church
are to receive the body and blood of thy Son this day,
even as thou wert near thy most dear Son
as He hung bleeding on the cross,
that, aided by thy gracious help,
we may worthily offer up a pure and acceptable sacrifice
in the sight of the holy and undivided Trinity.
