A Prayer to Mary, the Mother of Jesus

O Holy Mother, stand by me now at Mass time, when Christ comes to me, as you did minister to your infant Lord. Stand by me, Holy Mother, that I may gain somewhat of your purity, your innocence, your faith, and He may be the one object of my love and my adoration, as He was of yours.

Obtain for me this grace, O Virgin Mother, that I, when I suffer, may associate my sufferings with Him and with you, and that through His passion, and your merits, and those of all Saints, they may be a satisfaction for my sins and procure for me eternal life.

John Henry Newman
