O Holy Virgin,

in the midst of all your glory,

we ask you not to forget

the sorrows of this world.

Cast a look of pity upon all

who struggle against life's difficulties,

and who cease not to feel all its bitterness.

Have pity on all who have been

separated from those they love.

Have pity on the lonely and friendless.

Pardon the weakness of our faith.

have pity on those whom we love.

O Holy Mother,

show a mother's compassion toward the sorrowful

and those who tremble under life's afflictions.

Give them hope and peace.
