St Bartolome de Los Rios
Virgin of virgins, I choose you today as my sovereign, my queen, my empress, and I declare myself, as I am in fact, your servant and your slave. I invoke your royal name of Mary, that is, sovereign Lady, and beg of you with all my heart to admit me into the privileged circle of your family as one of your servants, to do your will as a humble slave and a loving child. As a sign of your acceptance engrave on my heart with the fire of your love, not the brand of an unwilling slave, but those two gracious words of the angel: AVE MARIA. As long as I draw breath may your burning love ensure that I bear these words in my heart and in my memory, and that until my dying breath my will may be always on fire with my great desire to serve you, my sovereign and my queen, glorious in your majesty. Though I am in every way unworthy of so honorable a title, I resolve sincerely to be your slave, to serve you wholeheartedly, to protect your name, and that of your Son, against every insult, as far as it may rest with me, and never to allow anyone in my charge to offend your Son in any way. By your tender love for your Son, by the glories you have received from the Most Holy Trinity, do not reject me from your service but as my sovereign and my queen preside over all my actions, command whatever you will, direct all my work, remedy all its defects. During my whole life rule over me as your servant and slave. At the hour of my death, as I hope for at the end of my loving servitude among the privileged members of your family, receive my soul and escort it into the presence of God.
My soul clings to you, Lord Jesus Christ.Holy Mother, on the cross Christ entrusted us to you as your children. Today we join with you in praising him.
