What to Ask of the Blessed Virgin

Detail of the Marian altar in St. Michael's Cathedral.

I will ask the Blessed Virgin for an all-embracing charity and perfect union with God, a most profound humility, and the desire for contempt from others. I will greatly esteem virtues in others.  I will look on everybody as my superior, judging well of all his works, reprehending, cen­suring, and judging only myself.   
                    – St. Anthony Mary Claret

    Hm... maybe this is a different crown?
