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.
Prayer to Our 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:
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.
Hail Mary, full of grace the Lord is with Thee.
Mother of Perpetual Succour, pray for him !
