Dear Little Saint Mary!
You were ready for the moment of martyrdom
because your short life was given over
to daily and heroic self-denial.
Your great love of the Sacred Hearts
made all this possible.
Teach me to love Jesus and His Blessed Mother,
so that I too will be inspired to daily self-denial.
I am inclined to pamper myself,
to gratify my senses,
and to excuse myself from all penance.
This keeps me from being a true follower of Christ.
Help me, lovable Little Martyr,
to a sincere practice of self-denial,
so that I may be your worthy follower
and thus gain Heaven for all Eternity.
