A Prayer of Petition to Our Lady from St. Bernard

Ave Maria Meditations

 Our Mediatrix and Advocate:  O blessed Lady, you found grace, brought forth the Life, and became the Mother of Salvation. May you obtain the grace for us to go to the Son. By your mediation, may we be received by the One who through you, gave himself to us. May your integrity compensate with him for the fault of our corruption; and may your humility, which is pleasing to God, implore pardon for our vanity. May your great charity cover the multitude of our sins; and may your glorious fecundity confer on us a fecundity of merits.


Dear Lady, our Mediatrix and Advocate:  reconcile us to your Son, recommend us to him, and present us to your Son. By the grace you found, by the privilege you merited, by the mercy you brought forth, obtain for us the following favor, O blessed Lady. May the One who – thanks to you – came down to share our infirmity and wretchedness make us share – again thanks to you – his glory and beatitude: Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord, who reigns in heaven and is blessed forever!  Amen.

Our Lady found this unworthy lukewarm person and obtained for her the grace to enter the Third Order of the Franciscans of the Immaculate. May this person spend all eternity in showing her gratitude.

    Thank you for this prayer to Our Lady by Saint Bernard. I love it!
    Actually, I like it that Saint Bernard calls Mary the “Mother of Our Salvation” rather than “Co-Redemptrix.” “Mother of Our Salvation” is a more accurate description of Mary’s role in our lives.

    Brothers and sisters, I would like to share with you a link of a very beautiful cistercian monastery in Brazil. It’s the Abbey of Our Lady of Assumption (Abadia de Nossa Senhora da Assunção).
