O Mother of Sorrows,
by the anguish and love
with which thou didst stand beside the Cross of Jesus,
stand by me in my last agony.
To thy maternal heart I commend the three last hours of my life.
Offer these hours to the Eternal Father
in union with the agony of our dearest Lord.
Offer frequently to the Eternal Father,
in atonement for my sins,
the Precious Blood of Jesus,
mingled with thy tears on Calvary,
to obtain for me the grace to receive Holy Communion
with most perfect love and contrition before my death,
and to breathe forth my soul in the actual presence of Jesus.
Dearest Mother, when the moment of my death has come,
present me as thy child to Jesus;
say to Him in my behalf:
“Son, forgive him, for he knew not what he did.
Receive him this day into Thy kingdom.”
