Faithful companion, appointed by God to be my guardian, my protector and defender, and who never leaves my side, how will I thank you for your faithfulness and love, and for all the benefits you have conferred on me? You take care of me while I sleep; You comfort me when I'm sad You pick me up when I'm sad you avoid the dangers that threaten me; you warn me of those to come; you separate me from sin, and excite me to good; You exhort me to penance when I fall, and you reconcile me to God. Long ago I should have been thrown into hell, unless with your prayers you had turned the wrath of God away from me. Do not leave me, nor ever abandon me, I beg you, but still console me in adversity, restrain me in prosperity, defend me in danger, help me in temptations, lest I fall under them at some point. Offer before the Divine Majesty my prayers and groans, and all my works of piety, and make me persevere in grace until I reach eternal life. Amen.
