"If you are a little one, then come to me,"  (Prov. 8).  Mary calls on every child who has need of a mother to come and seek her because she is of all mothers the most lovely.  Nuremberg expresses her love for us in these words:  What is the love of all other mothers but a mere shadow beside the love of Mary for each of us.

O Mother, O Mother of my soul, you love me and you long for my salvation so intensely that only God longs for it more than you do.  O Mary, prove yourself a Mother to me. 

Evening SighO Mother, you are mine;  let me ever remember you.

To be Said Each Day to Obtain Mary's Powerful Patronage

O Virgin Immaculate and Most Holy, my Mother Marythe Mother of my Lord, the Queen of the World, the Advocate, the Hope, the Refuge of Sinners,to you I come to seek your help todayI, who am the most in need of all. 
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.
