Marian Prayer of Blessed John Henry Newman

O Mother of Jesus, and my Mother,
let me dwell with you, cling to you
and love you with ever-increasing love.
I promise the honour, love and trust of a child.
Give me a mother’s protection,
for I need your watchful care.
You know better than any other
the thoughts and desires of the Sacred Heart.
Keep constantly before my mind the same thoughts,
the same desires, that my heart may be filled
with zeal for the interests of the
Sacred Heart of your Divine Son.
Instill in me a love of all that is noble,
that I may no longer be easily turned to selfishness.
Help me, dearest Mother, to acquire
the virtues that God wants of me:
to forget myself always,
to work solely for him,
without fear of sacrifice.
I shall always rely on your help
to be what Jesus wants me to be.
I am his; I am yours, my good Mother!
Give me each day
your holy and maternal blessing
until my last evening on earth,
when your Immaculate Heart will present me
to the heart of Jesus in heaven,
there to love and bless you and
your divine Son for all eternity.
