Prayers to the Blessed Virgin Mary for a Happy Death

Consecrate the Last 2 Hours of our Life to the Virgin Mary

Prostrated at thy feet and humiliated by my sins, but full of confidence in thee, O Mary! I beg thee to accept the petition my heart is going to make. It is for my last moments. Dear Mother, I wish to request thy protection and maternal love so that in that decisive moment thou wilt do all thy love can suggest on my behalf.

To thee, O Mother of my soul, I consecrate the last two hours of my life. Come to my side to receive my last breath and when death has cut the thread of my days, tell Jesus, presenting to Him my soul, “I love it.” Those words alone will be enough to procure for me the benediction of my God and the happiness of seeing thee for all eternity.

I put my trust in thee, my Mother, and hope it will not be in vain.

O Mary! Pray for thy child and lead me to Jesus!

Prayer to the Blessed Virgin to Obtain the Love of Jesus and a Happy Death

O Mary! Thou who so much desirest to see Jesus loved, if thou lovest me, this is the favour that I now ask of thee, to obtain for me a great love for Jesus Christ. Thou obtainest from thy Son whatever thou pleasest; pray, then, for me, and console me. Obtain for me a great love for thee, who of all creatures, art the most loving and beloved of God. And through that grief which thou didst suffer on Calvary, when thou didst behold Jesus expire on the Cross, obtainest for me a happy death, that by loving Jesus and thee, my Mother, I may come to love thee forever in heaven. Amen.

St. Joseph, patron of the dying, pray for us.
