Hail, holy Mother, thou who didst bring forth the King who rules heaven and earth forever and ever.
An Act of Consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary:
Holy Mary, Mother of God and Virgin, I choose thee this day for my queen, patron, and advocate, and firmly resolve and purpose never to abandon thee, never to say or do anything against thee, nor to permit that aught be done by others to dishonour thee. Receive me, then, I conjure thee, as thy perpetual servant; assist me in all my actions, and do not abandon me at the hour of my death. Amen. St. John Berchmans
