Pope Benedict's Ending Prayer for His First Encyclical

Holy Mary, Mother of God, you have given the world its true light, Jesus, your Son – the Son of God. You abandoned yourself completely to God's call and thus became a wellspring of the goodness which flows forth from him. Show us Jesus. Lead us to him. Teach us to know and love him, so that we too can become capable of true love and be fountains of living water in the midst of a thirsting world.

When I read this I thought my heart would burst, it is so beautiful a prayer to Our Blessed Mother Mary.
