Welcome My Poor Soul

Columban Daily Prayer
May 28, 2022

Mary, most holy Virgin and Queen of Martyrs,
accept the sincere homage of my affection.
Into your Heart, pierced by so many swords,
do 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 love for you.
And, sweet Mother, have pity on me,
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.
