"Do we wish, like Mary, to die without trouble? Let us then live like her, without attachment to created things; let us do as she did, let us love God alone, let us desire alone Him, let us seek to please Him only in everything that we do. Happy is that Christian who leaves nothing, to gain everything! Thus let Mary, our beautiful mother, be our guiding star in life and in death. Let us imitate her virtues, her humility, her piety, her charity, so that after the few years in this life we may expect to imitate her also in a happy death, to partake of the glory of her divine Son for all eternity. Amen."

Prayer of Saint Cajetan and Visit to the Blessed Sacrament
Look down, O Lord, from Thy sanctuary, and from the high habitation of heaven, and behold this sacred oblation which our great High Priest, Thy holy Servant, the Lord Jesus, immolates unto Thee for the sins of His brethren, and be propitious to the multitude of our iniquities. Behold, the voice of the blood of Jesus, our brother, crieth to Thee from the cross. Graciously hear, O Lord; be appeased, O Lord, hearken and do? Delay not for Thy own sake, my God, because Thy name is invoked upon this city and upon Thy people, and do with us according to Thy mercy.(Plenary indulgence on the first Thursday of each month for communicants visiting the blessed Sacrament and reciting this prayer. Partial indulgence of seven years and seven quarantines on other Thursdays. —Pius VII.)

"If God chastised sinners the moment they insult Him, we should not see Him so much despised. But, because He does not instantly punish their transgressions, and because through mercy He restrains His anger and waits for their return, they are encouraged to continue to offend Him. “For, because sentence is not speedily pronounced against the evil, the children of men commit evil without any fear” Eccles. 8:11."

Prayer to St. Cajetan for employment

"There is no one, O Most Holy Mary, who can know God except through thee; no one who can be saved or redeemed but through thee, O Mother of God; no one who can be delivered from dangers but through thee, O Virgin Mother; no one who obtains mercy but through thee, O Filled-With-All-Grace!"
