Sweet & Gentle Lady

Immaculate Mother of God, we choose thee this day as the Mistress and Lady of this house. Guard it, Dear Mother, from pestilence, fire, lightning and tempest, from schisms and heresies and from the malice of enemies.
Protect its inmates, sweet Mary, watch over their going out and their coming in and preserve them from sudden death.
Keep from us all the sin and harm and pray to God for us that we may live in His Service and depart this life In His Grace.
