You began immediately,
O holy Virgin,
to love and glorify God most perfectly,
and from that first moment
to the last of your life,
you did ever love and glorify him more and more.
As for me, in spite of all the years
I have been in this world,
I have not yet begun to love and serve him as I should.
O angels, and saints of Jesus Christ,
pray for me, that our loving Savior may give me new grace
and new love for him,
to devote this year and my whole life,
purely and solely to the service of His glory and love.
