My Queen! My Mother!

Today in The Liturgy of the Hours and at Mass, we commorate the Blessed Virgin Mary.  We hope you find this prayer, by St. Gertrude the Great, one that you will want to turn to again and again...

My Queen! My Mother!
I give thee all myself,
and to show my devotion to thee,
I consecrate to thee my eyes,
my ears,
my mouth,
my heart,
my entire self.

Wherefore, O loving Mother,
 as I am thine own,
keep me,
defend me,
as thy property and possession.
