Realizing, dear Mother Mary, that thou art our Perpetual Help not only in spiritual but likewise in temporal necessities, we approach thee with submissive and humble hearts, because we have a child-like confidence in thy power and goodness, beseeching thee to assist us in our present financial worry.
Owing to untoward circumstances which have arisen in our lives, we are in dire want, being unable to meet our honest debts. We are not asking, dearest Mother for wealth, if possession of it is not in accordance with the holy will of God; we merely beg for that assistance which will enable us to satisfy our pressing obligations.
We believe, dear Mother, that thou art the Queen of heaven and earth, and, as such, the instrument and special dispensation of thy Son Jesus Christ; that thou hast acquired by virtue of thy wonderful dignity, a sweet jurisdiction over all creation.
We believe that thou art not only rich and bountiful, but extremely kind and generous to all thy loving children. We plead with thee then, dear Mother, to obtain for us the help we so urgently need in our present financial difficulty.
We thank thee, dear Lady and promise to publish far and wide, the marvels of thy glorious Picture.
