O most glorious Virgin Mary, most sweet mother of our Lord Jesus Christ, my good Advocate, have mercy on me, a poor and miserable sinner. O most excellent Lily of the shining and admirable Trinity, I beg you to pray for me so that through you I may embrace your dear son Jesus Christ with perfect love, and that I may be made a soul according to his heart.
Blessed Mary of the Incarnation, “Madame Acarie”
b. 1 February 1566, Paris – d. 18 April 1618, Pontoise
