My Most Holy Lady,

I also beseech you to obtain for me
true obedience and true humility of heart

So that I may recognize myself truly

as a sinner–wretched and weak–
and powerless,
without the grace and help of my Creator
and without your holy prayers.

– St. Thomas Aquinas, Devoutly I Adore Thee (excerpt)
