Stella Maris (Star of the Sea)
Prayer of St. Germanus to Our Lady
"O you, who are, after God, my powerful protectress and my true consolation in this world,
you who are the celestial dew that sweetens my pains;
the light of my soul when
plunged in darkness, my guide in my journeys,
my strength in my weaknesses, my treasure in
poverty, the remedy of my wounds, my joy in all
my sorrows, my refuge in all dangers, the hope of
my life and of my salvation, deign to hear my
prayers, to take an interest in my woes, and to
show me that compassion which peculiarly belongs
to the Mother of a God Who entertains such love
and goodness towards men. He is their Father,
and He has constituted you their Mother. Ah!
place me then amongst the number of your dearest
children, and obtain for me from God all the
graces which you know to be necessary for the
salvation of my soul. Amen."
