Most Holy Mary Virgin Mother of God, I am unworthy to be your servant. Yet moved by your motherly care for me and longing to serve you, I choose you this day to be my Queen, my Advocate, and my Mother. I firmly resolve ever to be devoted to you and to do what I can to encourage others to be devoted to you.
My loving Mother, through the Precious Blood of your Son for me I beg you to receive me as your servant forever. Aid me in my actions and beg for me the grace never by thought, word, or deed, to be displeasing in your sight and that of your most holy Son. Remember me, dearest Mother, and do not abandon me at the hour of death.
--St. Francis de Sales (d. 1622)
