Have Pity on Me, Sweet Mother

Mary, most holy Virgin and Queen of Martyrs,
accept the sincere homage of my affection.
Into your Heart, pierced by so many swords,
you welcome my poor soul.
Receive it as the companion of your sorrows
at the foot of the Cross, on which Jesus died
for the redemption of the world.
With you, O sorrowful Virgin,
I will gladly suffer all the trials,
contradictions, and infirmities
which it shall please Our Lord to send me.
I offer them all to you in memory
of your sorrows, so that:
every thought of my mind
and every beat of my heart
may be an act of compassion and of love for you.
Have pity on me , sweet Mother,
reconcile me to your Divine Son, Jesus;
keep me in His grace and assist me in my last agony,
so that I may be able to meet you in Heaven
and sing your glories.
