Ever Immaculate Virgin,
Mother of mercy,
health of the sick,
refuge of sinners,
comfort of the afflicted,
you know my wants, my troubles, my sufferings;
cast upon me a look of mercy.
By appearing in the Grotto of Lourdes,
you were pleased to make it a privileged sanctuary,
when you dispense your favors,
and already many sufferers
have obtained the cure of their infirmities,
both spiritual and corporal.
I come, therefore, with unbounded confidence,
to implore your maternal intercession.
Obtain O loving Mother,
the grant of my requests.
I will endeavor to imitate your virtues,
that I may one day share your glory,
and bless you in eternity.
