Dear Saint Margaret Mary,
Permitted by the Sacred Heart of Jesus to become a caretaker of its divine treasures, obtain for us we ask you, from that adorable Heart all the graces we need.
We ask for them with boundless confidence. May the Divine Heart be willing to grant them to us through your intercession so that once again He may, through you, be glorified and loved. Amen.
