My Prayer to Mary

Allow me, Virgin Mary,
to address you, as I would your son Jesus
in all simplicity, in all friendship.
Are you not my mother?
Am I not your child?

Your name was one of the first on my lips,
One of the first in my heart.

You are there, on my path,
Faithful, discreet, attentive, and benevolent.

With you, my sorrows and miseries
Are less heavy and less bitter.

Are you not the

With you, all hope is secure, all expectation permissible.
Are you not the

It is He I was searching for,
With much sincerity,
In spite of my mistakes, in spite of my sins.
Are you not the

Virgin Mary, here is my prayer.
Beyond my words, you know my thoughts.
You who understood the silences of Jesus,
You can also understand mine.
They contain all that I cannot express.
Above all, they would tell you properly,
My love and my trust,
And also my joy of knowing you are close to me.
