O Immaculate Virgin, help remove from the hearts of our holy women any reluctance to giving themselves fully to God. Keep them from being immersed in the things of earth. Teach them how pure their hearts ought to be, so that they will never refuse anything to the Lord, and will always be able to repeat with you their sweet, prompt fiat. Illumine their minds, then, with the light which emanates from your resplendent purity, so that no attachment, no earthly affection may remain hidden in them to prevent their leading a life truly and fully consecrated to God. They have entrusted, in a very special way, a vow of chastity; guard it and make it pure, not only in body, but also in mind and heart. With your help, O Mother most holy, let their heart belong wholly to God. Amen.
