The following prayer is offered for the private devotion of our readers:
Immaculate Heart of Mary, may your sorrows be my sorrows, may your joys be my joys, may your love be my love. I am your slave now and forever. Be my Refuge, and the way that leads me to God. Amen.
Reading The Joyful Heart of Mary would help the reader to understand the underlying theology of the prayer, which is based on True Devotion to Mary and the Fatima revelations, wherein Sister Lucy was promised by Our Lady that “My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God.”
