O, St. Catherine,
who by your filial confidence in the Blessed Virgin
merited the privilege of contemplating
and conversing with Her while on this earth,
obtain for us a faith like yours in Her maternal love.
Grant that we may understand
and appreciate the value of silence and of humility,
and obtain for us the grace to show forth
these virtues in our lives.
Teach us to accomplish faithfully the duties of our state
in order that we may merit
the happiness of contemplating with you,
the Virgin Immaculate during all eternity.
