MARIAN PRAYERS OF SAINT BONAVENTURE # 3 (A.D. 1218-1274)

ABANDONMENT TO MARY

Virgin full of goodness,
Mother of Mercy,
I entrust to you my body and soul,
my thoughts, my actions,
my life and my death.
O my Queen, help me,
and deliver me from all the snares of the devil.
Obtain for me the grace
of loving my Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
with a true and perfect love,
and after him, O Mary,
to love you with all my heart
and above all things.

Amen.
