O most Blessed Virgin Mary,
mother of gentleness and mercy,
I, an unworthy sinner,
fly to you with sentiments of confidence and love.
I beg you who stood close to your most beloved Son
as He hung upon the cross,
graciously to remain near me,
a miserable sinner,
and near all priests who throughout the whole Church
will offer Holy Mass this day.
By your gracious favor help me to offer a sacrifice
which is worthy and acceptable
in sight of the most high and undivided Trinity.
