Prayer to Our Lady of Czestochowa “At the Little Castle” in Belz

(The prayer was written in letter form on a faded card sewn into the dress of the Miraculous Image of Our Lady of Czestochowa embroidered by the Felicians of Cracow in 1873) 

All through the Heart of Mary

O Mary of Jasna Gora, you who reign for so many centuries over Poland and her people; you who are a special Patroness and Foundress of our humble Congregation, have mercy on me and cure me of this sickness, in which I cry out over my sins.

O Mary, my mother, remember that I am yours, guard me and protect me as your possession. I give myself and our whole Congregation to you. Make us holy and preserve us for the glory of your Son.

Slave of the Virgin Mary,

s. Mary Angela
