Soul of Mary, sanctify me,
Body of Mary, purify me,
Heart of Mary, inflame me,
Sorrow of Mary, comfort me,
Tears of Mary, console me,
O Sweet Mary, hear me.
With thy benign eyes, look on me,
Through thy holy steps, guide me,
To thy Divine Son, pray for me,
Pardon for my sins, achieve for me,
Devotion to your holy Rosary, infuse in me,
Love for God and my fellow man, grant me,
Permit me not to ever be separated from thee.
In the hour of my death, comfort me,
From my enemies, defend me,
With the shield of thy holy name, protect me,
With thy mantle, cover me,
In the fatal instant of my agony, assist me,
From dying in sin, free me,
Into the arms of Jesus, deliver me,
To the eternal mansion, bring me,
So that, with the angels and saints
I can praise thee forever and ever, Amen.
From a holy card distributed by the Convent of the Conceptionist Sisters in Quito.
[With ecclesiastical approval]
In 1599, Our Lady of Good Success appeared to a sister in Quito, Ecuador, and commanded a statue to be made of her, for she would govern the conceptionist Convent as Abbess until the end of the world.
she said. ”In my right hand, place crosier and keys to the cloister as a sign of my proprietorship and authority.
”In my left arm, place my Divine Child so that men will understand how powerful I am in placating the Divine Justice and obtaining mercy and pardon for every sinner who comes to me with a contrite heart, for I am the Mother of Mercy and in me there is only goodness and love…let them come to me, for I will lead them to him.”
The statue was miraculously completed by Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael in the early morning of January 16, 1611.
