OLPS Prayer

Chaplet of Our Lady of Perpetual Help

IMG 1981O Mother of Perpetual Help, grant that I may always invoke your most powerful name, for your name is help in life and salvation in death. Mary most pure, Mary most sweet, let your name henceforth be the breath of my life. Delay not, O lady, to come to my aid whenever I call upon you in my hour of need. O Mother of Perpetual Help, what comfort, what sweetness, what confidence, what emotion fill my soul at the very mention of your name.  I thank the Lord for having given you to me and I will never cease to honour you for your goodness and eternal grace. Amen

Say three Our Fathers, three Hail Mary and Glorias.

St Therese of Lisieux's poem about Our Lady of Perpetual Succour

St Teresa

 

On my way to Heaven,
Where I shall see you,
Your beloved image accompanies me
on my earthly journey
to be my Perpetual Help.

You know how your sweet image
captivates my soul,
Near you I breath the fragrance of love,
And find my peace in your gaze.

Your maternal smile shone above me,
When I was good,
When I erred, sad was your gaze upon me.

My childish prayer you welcomed with caresses and maternal love,
I look upon you and weep no longer,
For I anticipate my Heaven.

My Mother, support me in the terrors
of my battle for God on earth,
IMG 2032To bring to Him my prisoners of war,
A thousand souls for His love.

Image of Mary, be always for me
A rich honeycomb of love,
To sweeten the bitterness of death;

My eyes to ever draw from you my consolation.

From this earth to you I go
Throwing myself into your arms,
To rest forever in your sweet embrace,
which none will ever take from me.
