That the Blessed Virgin's role as Mother may lead us to turn with filial confidence to her who is ever ready to listen with a mother's affection and efficacious assistance.
For fidelity to our Community charism and to our religious vows.
For him who will die first among us.
Prompted by love for my Lord and God, I offer him everything. May it all be according to his will and for his service! (La Trappe, 11/23/1837)
