PRAYER. Lady, here is the flower of the day: it is a bouquet of carnations. I present it to you as a symbol of an intention that I have conceived and it is that of putting my life in order in my actions, the order that my conscience dictates and that of maintaining it amidst the vicissitudes and the elements of this world and to persevere in it until death. I will be strong with the strength that I hope to receive from God through your mediation. Accept this flower.
