Virgin Mary, most loving Mother,
please give me a heart like yours,
firm in its attachments and of unshakable loyalty,
an affectionate heart which radiates a discreet tenderness and which is open,
a pure heart which lives in the flesh without being burdened by it,
a generous heart,
quick in forgetting its hurts and always ready to forgive,
a considerate heart which hides a great deal of love in the smallest details,
in the most humble service,
a magnanimous heart which rejoices in others’ triumphs
and shares in their sorrows,
a heart which condemns no one,
and does not tire of being confided to,
a heart taken up by Christ,
totally given to His infinite love.

Amen.
