Closing Prayer to Our Lady
O Mary, our Mother, with thine arms outstretched –
those tender arms in which the eternal God
delighted to dwell when He became our blood Brother –
plead our cause. With thine eyes of mercy,
beseech of Him for us, thy children,
the grace that in our exile we may resemble thee,
His most devoted follower, and so at last,
in union with thee, may glorify Him forever!
Which of these sentiments, petitions, desires most expresses my heart and why?
