The first Companions of Jesus: stained glass



Mary, My Advocate (Saint John Berchmans)

Holy Mary, Virgin Mother of God, I choose you this day to be my queen, my patroness, and my advocate, and I firmly resolve never to leave you, and never to say or do anything against you, nor ever permit others to do anything against your honor. Receive me, then, I beg you, for your servant forever. Help me in my every action, and abandon me not at the hour of my death.
