My only regret is that I have no adequate means by which to thank the Blessed Virgin Mary, through whose intercession I have received so much strength from the Lord to bear with sincere resignation the many humiliations to which I am subjected day after day.
-St. Pio of Pietrelcina
Prayer of Consecration to Mary
O my Queen and Mother, I give myself entirely to you. To show my devotion to you I consecrate to you this day my eyes, ears, mouth, heart, and whole being without reserve.
Therefore, good Mother, since I am your own, keep me and guard me as your proper and possession.
