Poems to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
teach us, every day,
to persevere in faith and in love,
just as You constantly persevered in God
after the Ascension of Your Son.
reveal to us the incalculable value of the Passion and the Cross;
may we not fear sacrifice, sorrow,
anguish and the end of time.
be the support of us all,
give us the impulse to serve and to love,
just as You served and loved
the ignorant and indifferent humanity.
May our hearts open
to feel and find the answer
within each lesson of life.
give us the patience that we need
to be able to go through these definitive moments.
Above all else,
may we live the unity of spirit among us,
brothers and sisters on the path,
just as You, dear Mother,
live the divine unity with Your Son.
Show us the meaning
of our self-giving and surrender, at each step;
may we be lovers of the Cross and of the Heart of Your Son
so that, in the example of Christ,
we may experience brotherhood and fraternity,
giving of ourselves, without delay, to a fellow being.
I thank you for responding to My call!
Who blesses you,
Your Mother, the Virgin Mary, Rose of Peace
