O mother we invoke thy prayer
May the Lord have mercy on us
And grant us peace
Teach me, O Mary Auxiliatrix, to be sweet and good in all the events of my life; in the deceptions lived, in our lack of care of others, in the lack of sincerity from those whom I believed in, in the disloyalty of those whom I trusted.
Help me to forget myself so as to think about the happiness of others; to hide my small sufferings in such a way that I am the only one that suffers them.
Teach me to benefit from my sufferings, to use them in such a way so that they soften me and do not harden or enbitter me; that they make me more patient and not irritable; that they make me generous in my clemancy and not narrow and despotic.
May nobody be less good, less amiable, less noble nor less holy for having been my companion in this journey towards life eternal. Amen

May I be blessed by my reading of this post. May I be saved from the persecutions of this world so I can gain heaven eternally. I like the opening poem, its simplicity for her exultation. I really pray that to all that suffers, by the virtue if her name, let us all be healed from our sufferings and pains. Thanks for this post.
Hi Marayam, I must say that this article is very helpful. We live in such a hard time where blasphemy and immorality take the world and Virgin Mary is our only hope and I pray to her every night before sleep. I hope that this text will help and motivate people to remember God and forget it because without him our life is useless.
Many of us pray and suffer in silence. And it is brought before the throne of God…
Have a blessed day.
