CHANNEL OF DIVINE GRACE
St. Germanus address the Most Blessed Virgin Mary in these words, "No one can be saved but through you; no one can be freed from evil things but through you; no one can receive gifts but through you." My Lady, it is clear that if you do not help me I am lost, and I will never be able to come to Heaven to sing your praises. But all the Saints tell me that you do not forsake those who seek your help. He is lost, and he only, who does not call on you. Poor as I am, I seek your help and in you I put all my trust.Evening Sigh: She is all my confidence, she is the total cause of my hope.
To be Said Each Day to Obtain Mary's Powerful Patronage
I bow in reverence before you, O Great Queen, and I thank you for the great graces you have given me until now, but especially because you have saved me from the punishments of hell which I have deserved so many times.
I love you, Most Lovely Lady, and because I love you so much I promise to be your faithful servant always, and to do all I can to make you loved by others, In you I place all my hopes, all my salvation.
O Mother of Mercy, accept me for your servant and shield me under your mantle; because you are great and powerful with God deliver me from all temptations, or better still get me the grace to conquer them even until death.
From you I ask for the true love of Jesus Christ; through you I hope to die a good death. O My Mother, I pray you by the love you have for God to give me your help at all times, but most of all at the last moment of my life; do not leave me until you see me safe in Heaven blessing you and singing your mercies for ever. Amen. This is my hope. So let it be.
