Prayers for Bowen, please!

Dear Friends
I ask you urgently, to please pray to Our Mother of Perpetual Succour for my nephew, Bowen Holgate, a young, Catholic, New Zealander, 19 years of age.
Bowen had just returned home for the University holidays, when on Saturday, without any warning, he collapsed.
Admitted to the Intensive Care unit of the Timaru hospital, Bowen was diagnosed with Cerebral Meningitis and is now on a life support machine.
I ask your prayers for him to obtain all the graces he can as yet receive.
Please pray also for Bowen's anguished mother and father, Angela and Ross, and his sisters Grace and Claudia.
We are very grateful to you for your kind prayers in this painful time.
Fr. Michael Mary, F.SS.R.

Prayer to Our Mother of Perpetual Succour

O Mother of Perpetual Succour
Grant that I may always invoke Thy Most Powerful Name
For Thy Name is help in life, salvation in death.
O Mary, most pure, Mary most sweet,
let Thy name henceforth be the breath of my life.
Tarry not O Lady to come to my succour
whenever I call upon Thee,
For in all the want which befall me
I will never cease to call upon Thee,
and to repeat again and again:
Mary! Mary!
What comfort, what sweetness, what tenderness,
what confidence does my soul feel,
in the very mention of Thy name,
in the very thought of Thee.
I thank the Lord for having given me for my good
this Name so sweet sweet, so amiable, so powerful.
But merely to pronounce Thy Name is not enough for me.
I wish to do so out of love.
I wish that love may remind me to call Thee always,
Mother of Perpetual Succour. Amen.
Then, please, add the 9 Hail Marys of the Novena

Hail Mary, full of grace the Lord is with Thee.
Blessed art Thou among women
and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death. Amen. (x9)
concluded by the this invocation three times:
Mother of Perpetual Succour, pray for him !
