Devotions to the Virgin Mary, continued.

Prayer, O intemerata ... Da, continued.



... fear no evil, and do such penance for sins in this life as is acceptable to Christ, through the merits and prayers of his mother. He asks that in this way Christ may appear to him in the next life, mercifully granting him eternal life and rest with the elect.

He asks her to hear his prayers and help him. He invokes St John, the beloved of Christ, the virgin whom Christ chose and loved more than the other disciples, initiating him into the mysteries of heaven and making him his pre-eminent apostle and evangelist.
