A Prayer to the Mother of God

O Mary, dearest Mother,
how much we love you, and yet in reality, how little.

For you to teach us what we ought to know :
you teach us what Christ Jesus is to us, and what we ought to be for Him.

Dearly Beloved Mother, how close to God you are!
In the measure that we know God, we remind ourselves of you, Mother of God!

Obtain for us the grace of loving your Son, 

obtain the grace of loving you. Amen.
