Ave Maria Meditations Encore

A Prayer to Our Lady from St. Bonaventure:

 I shall call upon you, Mother of God, and you will hear me; your praises will gladden my heart. I have called to you in trouble, and you have heard me at your throne in heaven. Take up my cause, Mother, for I have departed from my innocence; but because I have hoped in you, I shall not lose my soul.

To you, Mother, have I pleaded after having wandered from God, and I was saved by the power of your intercession. In you, Mother, I place all my hope, because of your most loving compassion.  

Into your hands I entrust my souls and body, my whole life and the hour of my death. Intercede for us, Mother of God and Mediatrix, who have brought salvation to mankind.

St. Bonaventure (Franciscan Doctor of the Church, Feast Day July 15th)

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.
