Prayer to the Blessed Virgin Mary
Mother of God, the Immaculate Mary, I consecrate to you my soul and my body, all of my prayers, my joys and sorrows, all of myself and all I have.
I surrender myself to you to be the slave of your love. I surrender to you my freedom, so you would use me in salvation of people and in helping to the Holy Church whose Mother you are.
From this day on, I wish to do all with you, through you and for you. I know that with my own strength I cannot accomplish anything, but you can do all that is the will of your Son and you are the one who always wins. (photos)
