Prayer For Saturday
O my most holy Mother, behold the graces which thou hast obtained for me, and
the ingratitude which I have shown toward thee. The thankless soul is no longer worthy of
blessings; but not on even this account will I lose confidence in thy mercy.
O my mighty Advocate, have pity on me. Thou art the dispenser of all the graces that
God grants to the miserable children of men, and to this end has made thee so mighty, so rich
and so kind that thou mightest succour us in our need.
I wish to be saved; in thy hands I place my eternal salvation; to thee I commend my spirit.
I wish to be inscribed among thy most special servants; drive me not away. Thou goest about
seeking the wretched to comfort them: do not abandon a poor sinner who flies to thy protection.
Speak thou for me; thy Son will do whatsoever thou shalt ask of Him. Take me under thy protection,
and this is enough for me; for if thou shield me, I shall fear nothing: not my sins, for I hope
that thou wilt obtain their remission from Almighty God; not the evil spirits, for thou art
mightier than the powers of hell; not even Jesus as my Judge, for one prayer of thine will
turn away His anger.
Do thou, therefore, protect me, dear Mother, and obtain for me the remission of all my sins,
the love of Jesus, final perseverance, a happy death, and Paradise at last. True it is, I do not
deserve these graces, but if thou dost ask them for me from our Lord, I shall receive them.
O Mary, my Queen, pray to Jesus for me; in thee do I put my trust; in this hope will I live and
take my rest; and with this hope I wish to die. Amen.
In reparation for the blasphemies
uttered against the Blessed Virgin Mary:
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at
the hour of our death. Amen.
