O Mother of Perpetual Help,
I invoke your powerful name
which is the safeguard of the living
and the salvation of the dying.
O purest and sweetest Mary,
hear me when I call upon you
for help in all my physical
and spiritual needs.
I offer myself into your hands.
Hold me close to your heart
as you held your Son Jesus,
and ask the angels, Michael and Gabriel
to keep watch over me always
in times of trouble and temptation.
I look forward to being with you all again after my return on April 18th. Pax.
