The Memorare

Submitted by frlarry on Sat, 10/06/2007 - 16:21
Remember, oh most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known,
that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help,
or sought thy intercession
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
I fly unto thee,
oh Virgin of virgins, my mother.
To thee do I come;
before thee do I stand,
sinful and sorrowful.
Oh, mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but, in thy mercy,
hear and answer me.

Amen.

Final musing...

If I ever do wind up in hell, I suspect my punishment will be to teach math to politicians and journalists. Then again, it might be, instead, locating and fixing all of the grammatical and spelling errors in everything I've ever written. (Myth of Sisyphus, anyone?)
