Today we say a prayer dictated by the Virgin Mary to obtain eternal salvation
It was revealed to Santa Matilde di Hackeborn, a Benedictine nun who died in 1298, as a sure means of obtaining the grace of a good death. Our Lady told her:
“If you want to obtain this grace, recite every day pray Three Hail Marys, to thank the Blessed Sacrament. Trinity of the privileges of which it has enriched me. With the first you will thank God the Father of the Power he has given me, and by virtue of it you will demand that I assist you at the hour of death.
With the second you will thank God the Son of having communicated to me his wisdom, so that I know the Trinity more than all the saints. For it you will ask me that at the hour of death you shine your soul with the lights of faith and turn away from you any ignorance of error.
With the third you will thank the Holy Spirit for having filled me so much with love and goodness that after God I am the most tender and merciful. For this incomparable goodness you will ask me that at the hour of your death I will fill your soul with the sweetness of divine love and change the pains of death for you in sweetness.
