The Glories Of Mary
by ST. ALPHONSUS LIGUORI
VARIOUS PRAYERS TO MARY
PRAYER OF ST. BLOSIUS TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN.
HAIL, Mary, hope of the despairing, help of the destitute, to whom thy Son pays so great honor that whatever thou dost ask thou dost at once obtain, whatever thou dost wish is at once done. To thee are committed the treasures of the celestial kingdom. Grant, oh Lady, that amid the storms of this life, I may always turn my eyes to thee. To thy mercy I commend my soul and my body. Direct and protect me at every hour and every moment, oh my sweet protectress.
