Holy Virgin, moved by the painful uncertainty we experience
in seeking and acquiring the TRUE and the GOOD,
we cast ourselves at Thy feet and invoke Thee
under the sweet title of MOTHER OF GOOD COUNSEL.
We beseech Thee: come to our aid at this moment in our worldly sojourn
when the twin darknesses of error and of evil
plot our ruin by leading minds and hearts astray.
Seat of Wisdom and Star of the Sea,
enlighten the victims of doubt and of error
so that they may not be seduced by evil masquerading as good;
strengthen them against the hostile and corrupting forces of passion and of sin.
Mother of Good Counsel, obtain for us from Thy Divine Son
the love of virtue and the strength to choose,
in doubtful and difficult situations,
the course agreeable to our salvation.
Supported by thy hand we shall thus journey without harm
along the paths taught us by the word and example of Jesus our Saviour,
following the Sun of Truth and Justice
in freedom and safety across the battlefield of life
under the guidance of thy maternal Star,
until we come at length to the harbour of salvation
to enjoy with thee
unalloyed and everlasting peace.
