Mary, most holy Virgin and Queen of Martyrs,
accept the sincere homage of my filial affection.
Into thy Heart, pierced by so many swords,
do thou welcome my poor soul.
Receive it as the companion of thy sorrows
at the foot of the Cross,
on which Jesus died for the redemption of the world.
With thee, O sorrowful Virgin,
I will gladly suffer all the trials,
contradictions, and infirmities
which it shall please Our Lord to send me.
I offer them all to thee in memory of thy sorrows, so that:
every thought of my mind
and every beat of my heart
may be an act of compassion and of love for thee.
And do thou, sweet Mother,
have pity on me,
reconcile me to thy Divine Son, Jesus;
keep me in His grace and assist me in my last agony,
so that I may be able to meet thee in Heaven
and sing thy glories.

Most holy Virgin and Mother,
whose soul was pierced by a sword of sorrow
in the Passion of thy Divine Son,
and who in His glorious Resurrection
wast filled with never ending joy at His triumph,
obtain for us who call upon thee,
so to be partakers in the adversities of Holy Church
and the Sorrows of the Sovereign Pontiff,
as to be found worthy to rejoice with them
in the consolations for which we pray,
in the charity and peace of the same Christ our Lord.
