Virtue of Humility

My tender Mother,
obtain for me a deep humility from God,
internal and external humility,
a deep knowledge of myself,
and a spirit of mortification
so that I humble myself before God and creatures.
Help me to have contempt and humiliations loved,
but myself despised.
Mirror of humility grant me the virtue of humility and obedience.
Grant me the virtue of meekness and sweetness
so that I treat people with kindness,
especially when I meet the ones
against whom I feel repugnance.
