(Which She Herself Taught St Gertrude.)
O Most chaste Virgin Mary,
I beseech thee by that unspotted purity wherewith thou didst prepare for the Son of God a dwelling of delights in thy virginal womb, that by thine intercession I may be cleansed from every stain.
O most humble Virgin Mary,
I beseech Thee by that most profound humility wherewith thou didst merit to be raised high above all the choirs of Angels and Saints, that by thine intercession all my negligences may be expiated.
O most amiable Virgin Mary,
I beseech thee by that ineffable love which united thee so closely and inseparably to God, that by thine intercession I may obtain an abundance of all merit.
O Mary, our Hope, have pity upon us.
