My Life In Prayer

Complete Prayer Book
PRAYER TO OUR DEAR MOTHER OF PERPETUAL HELP.




PRAYER TO OUR DEAR MOTHER OF PERPETUAL HELP.

Virgin, dearest Mother mine,
Let me be forever thine;
Thine throughout my earthly life,
Thine in sorrow, fear, and strife;
Thine, when dark'ning clouds will lower,
Thine, thine own, through thy great power,
Virgin sweet, O Mother mine,
Let me be forever Thine.
Mother—I trust and confide in thee!
Mother—I send up my sighs to thee!
Mother—assist thy poor child so weak!
Mother—protection and strength I seek!
O Mother—come, help in my combat each day!
O Mother—come, teach me to suffer like thee!
O Mother—yes, come, be forever with me!
Yes, thou canst help me, most Powerful one!
Thou shalt sustain me, most Merciful one!
Thou must assist me, most Faithful one!
O yes, thou wilt aid me, most Loving one!

Mother of grace, the joy of our nation!
Refuge of sinners, the gate of salvation!
Hope of the exile, God's work of perfection!
Comfort in sorrow, our mighty protection!
Who ever implored thee in vain, Mother mild,
When hast thou forgotten the prayers of thy child?
I call, without ceasing, in sadness or fear:
"Sweet Mary will aid me, Mother so dear!"
I call in all suffering, and with my last breath:
"O Mary, assist me, in life and in death!"
This is my fond hope, and at last I shall say:
"My Mother will meet me in Heaven today!"

The Archconfraternity of Our Lady of Perpetual Help and St. Alphonsus is established at this Church.

1.—Advantages. The special protection of Our Blessed Lady in life and in death. Many plenary and partial indulgences.
2.—Obligations. None that bind under sin. The following practices are recommended; to wear a medal of Our Lady of Perpetual Help; to have her picture in one's room; on Wednesdays if possible to visit the picture in our church, which is an exact copy of the miraculous image in Rome; in all spiritual and temporal necessities to invoke the help of Our Blessed Lady.
