PRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN
(Never known to fail)
O Most Beautiful Flower of Mount Carmel, fruitful vine, splendor of Heaven, Blessed Mother of the Son of God, Immaculate Virgin, assist me in my necessity. O Star of the Sea, help me and show me here that you are my mother. O Holy Mary Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth, I humbly beseech you from the bot- tom of my heart to succor me in my necessity (make request). There are none that can withstand your power. O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee (three times). Holy Mary, I place this cause in your hands (three times). Say this prayer for three consecutive days and then you must publish it and it will be granted to you.
