O Mary, Mother of God, your Son, though He was Life itself, did not exempt Himself from death. So, as a daughter of Adam, you submitted to the sentence passed on the human race in the garden of Eden. You died, but you died of no infirmity. Little by little, the links between your body and soul were dissolved by the resistless force of love. Intense love for the Infinite God is what withdrew your soul from this earthly life and caused your death.
O Mary, assumed into heaven, pray for us who have recourse to thee!
