Columban Daily Prayer

Sweet Heart of Mary

My dearest Mother Mary,
behold me, your child, in prayer at your feet.
Accept this Holy Rosary, which I offer you
in accordance with your requests at Fatima,
as a proof of my tender love for you,
for the intentions of the Sacred Heart of Jesus,
in atonement for the offenses committed
against your Immaculate Heart,
and for this special favor
which I earnestly request in my Rosary Novena:

I beg you to present my petition to your Divine Son.
If you will pray for me, I cannot be refused.
I know, dearest Mother, that you want me
to seek God’s holy Will concerning my request.
If what I ask for should not be granted, may I receive
that which will be of greater benefit to my soul.

I offer you this spiritual “Bouquet of Roses” because I love you.
I put all my confidence in you,
since your prayers before God are most powerful.
For the greater glory of God
and for the sake of Jesus, your loving Son,
hear and grant my prayer.
Sweet Heart of Mary, be my salvation.
