Maria, Rosa Mystica, fragrant rose of mysticism, wonderful flower of divine knowledge, of purity and blinding beauty, of brilliant, shining glory, of power and overwhelmingly blessing love: we kneel before you to pray, to look, to listen; to look at you and inhale your heavenly perfume until we have, above all, taken something of your immaculate, pure, and perfect being into our inner selves; to pray that we should no longer, or above all, ask only for your gifts, for the salvation of, and help for, our body and soul; but to pray that we may become like you; that we may listen attentively and closely to every single word of yours which you have spoken not only in the past but even more so in the present, more frequently and more imploringly. We do not always want to talk and beg but to listen and heed what you say, what your picture is already saying and asking us to do. We want to listen to your quiet motherly voice when it speaks to us so tenderly and consolingly with motherly understanding and warning. We want to open our hearts to you when Jesus is looking into the bottom of our soul, to remain steadfast, to force ourselves not to say again we have no time; instead to endure your sad glance even if we should blush and have to cast down our eyes…. Mary, fragrant Rose of Mysticism, please help us to take a look inside ourselves and to examine ourselves, how we shall be able to bear your glance and stand firm before you; help us to know ourselves better, especially in those areas of thought and deed which displease you; help us to become like you. We promise that we shall try. We also promise to imitate you. Please, help us to work on ourselves, to let your love shine wherever we are able to work, but especially for the priests and religious. 


3 Hail Mary. . .

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who take refuge in you.

Mystical Rose, be thou blessed, Mother of Divine Grace.  Thou hast given to the whole of mankind thy divine Son, Jesus Christ, the Author of Grace.   
Mystical Rose, be thou ever blessed!  Thy Divine Son, when dying upon the cross, obtained grace for us and thou didst co-operate with Him in this, when the sword pierced Thy soul.   
Mystical Rose, be thou ever blessed!  Thou were chosen by the Heavenly Father to be the mistress of His treasures, stewardess and distributor of all His graces.   
Mystical Rose, our mother!  Turn loving eyes upon the millions of human kind.  We beg thee, we implore thee, we beseech thee, let all obtain the grace of God through holy Baptism, the sacrament of Reconciliation and all the other sacraments.   
Mystical Rose, Mother of Divine Grace, let us all attain to the house of the Heavenly Father, for we are all Thy children and the children of God.  Look upon my soul, which through sin is so poor and unworthy.   
Mystical Rose, thou givest to whom thou willest.  Thou givest when and as much as thou willest.  I trust in thee; I open my heart to thee.  Let thy light irradiate my soul.  Make Thy motherly love cause my indifferent heart to glow.  Fill me with Thy joy, Thy humility and Thy peace!   Mystical Rose, thou acceptest that thou art a mother with a special care for all those children who most require thy help.  And so I seek thy help in all my bodily and spiritual needs.  Very particularly I beg thee for the following grace . . .   
Mystical Rose, thou art the mother of Jesus Christ and the mother of Divine Grace, Thou art the Mother of Mercy and the Mother of Life.  Thou art our kind mother and our hope.  Enclose me in Thy Immaculate Heart and hear my prayer.  Amen. 
Mystical Rose, pray to Jesus for us!

We ask you, grant us Your help to imitate Your Most Holy Mother more and more, to become souls of expiation and victim souls for those priests and religious, who fail you: You who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.
