PRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN. Most beautiful flower of Mt. Carmel, Fruitful Vine, Splendor of Heaven, Blessed Mother of the Son of God, Immaculate Virgin, assist me in this my necessity. Star of the Sea, help me and show me herein you are my Mother. Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth, I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to assist me in this necessity; there are none that can withstand your power. Show me herein you are my Mother, conceived without sin, and pray for us who have recourse to thee. Sweet Mother, I place this cause in your hands. Amen. When favor is granted, must be published.
