The Restoration Prayer
Prof. Plinio Correa de Oliveira
There are moments, o my Mother, in which my souls feels touched in its deepest recesses by an ineffable yearning. I long for the time in which I loved thee and thou didst love me in the vernal atmosphere of my spiritual life. I yearn for thee, my Lady, and for the paradise that was placed in me by the great communication I had with thee.
My Lady, dost Thou not also long for that time? Dost thou not long for the goodness which existed in that child that I once was?
Come, therefore, thou who art the best of all Mothers, and for the love of that which was blossoming in me, restore me. Recompose in me that love for thee and make of me the complete realization of that child without stain which I would have been had I not been so miserable.
Give me, o my Mother, a repentant and humbled heart and make shine once again before my eyes that which, through the splendor of thy grace, I had once begun to love so very much. Remember, o Lady, this David, and all the sweetness thou didst place in him.
So be it.
