Overwhelmed by these thoughts, I ask for your help. Do not forsake me in my sadness. Hasten to my aid. I will be grateful to you all my life and I will honour you as my special patron. I will thank God for the graces bestowed upon you, and I will gratefully encourage honour to you to the best of my ability. Amen.
