The Glories Of Mary

by ST. ALPHONSUS LIGUORI

PRAYERS TO THE DIVINE MOTHER FOB EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK.

SUNDAY.
Prayer to the most holy Mary to obtain the pardon of sins.



BEHOLD, oh mother of God, at thy feet a
miserable sinner, the slave of hell, who has recourse
to thee, and trusts in thee. I do not even merit
that thou shouldst look upon me, but I know
that having seen thy Son die to save sinners,
thou hast the greatest desire to aid them. Ok
mother of mercy, look on my miseries, and have
pity on me. I hear thee called by all: The refuge
of sinners, the hope of the desperate, the
help of the abandoned. Then thou art my refuge,
my hope, my help. Thou must save me by
thy intercession. Succor me for the love of Jesus Christ,
give thy hand to a poor fallen sinner
who recommends himself to thee. I know
that thou dost find consolation in helping the
sinner when thou canst; help me then, for thou
canst help me. I, by my sins have lost the
grace of God and my own soul, i^ow I place
myself in thy hands; tell me what I must do to
return to the favor of my Lord, for I will do it,
without delay. He sends me to thee, that thou
mayest succor me, and he wishes me to have
recourse to thy mercy, that not only the merits of
thy Son, but also thy prayers may aid in my salvation.
To thee then I have recourse; thou who
dost pray for so many others, pray also to Jesus
for me. Ask him to pardon me, and he will pardon
me; tell him that thon dost desire my salvation,
and he will save me. Make known the
good that thou canst do to those who confide in
thee. Amen; thus I hope, thus may it be.
