Sweet Sovereign of Heaven, look down with compassion upon those souls who bear many afflictions and crosses, pains and sufferings, in this world and in the flames of Purgatory.
Console them with your manifold prayers: obtain for them from your Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ, the great Graces of Patience, Justice, Charity, Hope, Faith, and Trust in the Good God and in the prayers of all His angels and saints, most especially His Blessed Mother.
Protect them within your Royal Mantle: Enwrap these precious children in your wonderful Mantle, as a hen protects her chicks under her wings, O Mother of men, and present them to the Fruit of your womb, that He may be compelled to have Mercy on them all.
Be always present with these souls, for they are your Son in disguise and you would not leave Him for a moment; you even, for love of God and for love of man, shared in His sufferings throughout His life, most especially in the Hour of His Glory, the Hour of Great Mercy, at Calvary. Gently advocate for their salvation and sanctification before the great King of Mercy, reminding Him of the Mysteries of the Incarnation and Redemption, those historic yet transcendant events when the Good God took on the form of a servant, assuming, without destroying Himself, all human beings, especially those in most need of His Mercy, so that Jesus Christ is the marriage of God and man, Mercy and sinner, Love and suffering, Justice and injustice, Holiness and wretchedness, Creator and creature, and, wishing to show how much He loved us and how far He was willing to go to love us, He allowed Himself to be hung upon the Wood of the Tree of Life as the Fruit or Medicine of Immortality, and from His wondrous Side came forth His Bride, the Catholic Church, who is the World Reconciled, and of whom you, Mary, are a Figure and Type as the New Eve of the New Adam, Queen of the King, in light of your Divine Maternity, Perpetual Virginity, Immaculate Conception, and glorious Assumption. May all these souls whom I now recommend to you be inspired by your powerful intercession to praise and glorify the Lord, who in His Mercy and Wisdom gave you as a Mother to them and they to you as sons.
You know well the sufferings of your sons, having bore them yourself throughout your life, most especially at Calvary when you shared in the sufferings of the Servant of the Lord, who in Himself bore all the sufferings of man; I ask you to request your Son to grant some comfort to His brothers and sisters, lest the weight of their crosses crush them underneath; but more than that, I ask you to also please request your Son to do His Will in all men and all nations and to inspire souls to offer themselves and their afflictions to God, that He might use them to save us all, for in His Mercy and Wisdom He brings out of evil a greater good. Compassionate Mother, I offer you myself, and I ask of you to please give me to your Son, that He might do with me as He pleases, for the glory of His Mercy and the sanctification of His Name, and for the sake of all those who suffer in this world and in the flames of Purgatory.
