A Prayer Commending Oneself to Mary

By Saint Aloysius Gonzaga


Statue of Mary

This beautiful prayer was composed by Saint Aloysius Gonzaga, who had a special devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. In it, we pledge ourselves to Mary, that she may intercede for us so that our will may be aligned with the will of her Son.

Prayer Commending Oneself to Mary

O holy Mary, my Mistress, into thy blessed trust and special blessing, into the bosom of thy tender mercy, this day, every day of my life and at the hour of my death, I commend my soul and body; to thee I entrust all my hopes and consolations, all my trials and miseries, my life and the end of my life, that through thy most holy intercession and thy merits, all my actions may be ordered and disposed according to thy will and that of thy divine Son. Amen.
