Rose Celona (Marino)
IN LOVING MEMORY OF
March 24, 1913 -
July 4, 2012
Remember O most gracious Virgin
Mary that never was it known that
anyone who fled to Thy protection,
implored Thy help, and sought Thy
intercession was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence, I fly
unto Thee, O Virgin of virgins, my
Mother! To Thee I come, before
Thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
Oh Mother of the Word incarnate
despise not my petitions, but in Thy
mercy hear and answer me.
