To the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Oh Mother Most Pure,
we come to You as a family
and consecrate ourselves to your most Immaculate Heart.
We come to You as a family
and place our trust in Your powerful intercession.
Oh Dearest Mother Mary,
teach us as a mother teaches her children,
for our souls are soiled
and our prayers
because of our sinful hearts.
Here we are Dearest Mother,
ready to respond to You
and follow Your way,
for Your way leads us
to the heart of Your Son, Jesus.
We are ready to be cleansed and purified.
Come then Virgin Most Pure,
and embrace us with Your motherly mantle.
Make our hearts whiter than snow
and as pure as a spring of fresh water.
Teach us to pray,
so that our prayers
may become more beautiful
than the singing of the birds at the break of dawn.
Dear Mother Mary,
we entrust to Your Immaculate Heart of hearts,
and our entire future.
Lead us all to our homeland which is Heaven.
Immaculate Heart of Mary,
pray for us.

Come, virgins chaste; pure brides, draw near:
Let Earth exult and Heaven hear
The Hymn that grateful accents raise,
Our song of joy in Rita's praise.
By fast her sinless frame is weak;
Her livid flesh the scourges streak.
In pity for her Savior's woes,
Her days and even nights are closed. ... continue reading
