Ave Maria Meditations
Most holy Mary, virgin Mother of God, I___________, although unworthy, desire to be thy servant, and encouraged by thy motherly care for me and longing to serve thee, I do in the presence of my guardian angel and all the court of heaven, choose thee this day to be my Queen, my Advocate and my Mother, and I firmly purpose to serve thee evermore and to do what I can that all may render faithful service to thee.
Therefore, most devoted Mother, through the precious Blood thy Son poured out for me, I beg thee and beseech thee to take me among thy clients and receive me as a servant forever. Aid me in my every action, and beg for me the grace never, by word or deed or thought, to be displeasing in thy sight and that of thy most holy Son. Think of me, my dearest Mother, and desert me not at the hour of death. Amen.
From a prayer by St. Francis de Sales
