"We should pray hard to the Lord Jesus so that we will highly respect ourselves and everyone will refrain from offending holy purity so much loved by the Blessed Virgin. The Blessed Virgin was so pure... The Lord chose her because of her purity, because of her unblemished soul..."

PRAYERS TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN
During the May 1996 prayer meeting the following prayers, compiled by Guza, were said. These prayers are recited every year during the May prayer meetings:
"Lord God of Hosts, Lord Jesus in the Eucharist, Holy Spirit, we salute You, we adore You and we love You. Hail, most Blessed Virgin. Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be.
Dear Holy Mother, with your help, we often come to Girgenti so that before you and before the majesty of almighty God, we pray with you and do penance. Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be.
Blessed Virgin, we love you. You gave us many directions, help and courage by which we have engraved many beautiful events in this place, many acts of love and penance towards almighty God, towards the Lord Jesus, and to strengthen the faith which the Holy Spirit gives us. Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be.
Hear, most Blessed Virgin, this greeting given to you by the Maltese, the Gozitans and all the peoples of the whole world, united in the love and hope which you give us from Heaven. Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be.
Dear Holy Mother, venerated in this sanctuary at Girgenti, help us so that with the passing of time we would become happier, render Malta and Gozo full of love towards Heaven, and our Eternal Father would continue to help us, to forgive us and to prepare us to make a good death. Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be.
Our Lady of Consecration, understand us and pray for us before the Lord God and before your son Jesus, both in Heaven and on earth, so that you draw us closer to that place prepared for us in Heaven. Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be.
Dear Blessed Virgin, we love you so much that we leave our homes and come up here to venerate you, to adore God almighty and Jesus. Help us in both our spiritual and material needs and help us to understand and to accept the will of God the Father. Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be.
May the Lord God in Heaven be praised and blessed. May the Lord Jesus be praised and blessed in Heaven and in all the tabernacles of the world, including the poor tabernacle of our soul.
We thank you, almighty God, for the graces which You are giving us to leave our homes and come up here with so much faith, in order to praise You and do these acts of penance. Holy Spirit, be with us. Strengthen the love, the faith and the hope of the Maltese, the Gozitans and foreigners, so that no one shall remain in the road of evil, but we would all follow the roads of righteousness which the Lord God wants us to follow and which He prepared for us when He sent His son Jesus into the world by the gentle and marvellous consent of the Blessed Virgin.
God the Father, we come up here to adore and to show the respect and the love which You and Your Son Jesus greatly deserve. Jesus is our elder brother who is protecting us and prays for us before You. We also show our devotion towards Your dear Mother and our Mother, the Blessed Virgin. Help us so that we would continue to pray for the needs of our brethren, so that we would not be selfish in our prayers and the message of peace and love which is issuing from this small sanctuary of Girgenti will keep on spreading throughout the whole world.
Our Lady of Consecration, lead us to our salvation."
