That Mary, the perfect disciple of Jesus, be our model, and that we may become perfect disciples of Jesus as we follow Mary, rely on Mary, and tend to Christ through Mary. (Art.152)
For faithfulness to our vows, and for the spirit of Resurrection.
For the gift of wisdom for our Superiors.
Lord, even if I were to go through life experiencing absolutely no interior consolation, keep me faithful in your service! This will be your greatest kindness to me and my greatest happiness. (La Trappe, 11/13/1837)
