O Mother of Perpetual Succour, and my own best-beloved Mother, I thank you for all the blessings and graces you have obtained for me since my birth, and especially during all my temptations. And now, to so many former favours, vouchsafe, O Mary, add that of admitting me, though most unworthy, into the number of your special clients, that with them I may prove to you my devotion of veneration and love. You shall always be, next after God, my only hope, and the object most dear to my heart. In all my wants, in all my straits and temptations, I will always have recourse to you; you shall be my refuge and my consolation. I desire in all the combats, afflictions and weariness of life to have no other support but God and you. I would rather be one of your servants than have the whole world at my command; my ambition shall be to serve you, to bless you, to love you till my dying breath. Amen.
