NEW YORK, JAN. 17, 2007 ().- The Holy See's permanent observer mission to the United Nations wants to address the scourge of violence against women in contemporary society.

To do so, it has convoked a day of reflection for Feb. 27, co-sponsored by the Path to Peace Foundation and the Vincentian Center for Church and Society

The day of reflection coincides with a meeting of the U. N. Commission on the Status of Women.

The panel of speakers, moderated by Marilyn Martone, a theology professor at St. John's University, will address topics such as domestic violence, sexual exploitation of women and girls, and gender violence.

This event seeks to identify the social, economic and legal problems that violence inflicts upon women and discuss these issues through the prism of the dignity of the human person.

These conferences are planned in conjunction with upcoming U.N. meetings on the topic.

Immaculate Conception, Mary, my Mother.

Live in me. Act in me. Speak in and through me.

Think your thoughts in my mind. Love, through my heart.

Give me your dispositions and feelings.

Teach, lead and guide me to Jesus.

Correct, enlighten and expand my thoughts and behavior.

Possess my soul. Take over my entire personality and life.

Replace it with yourself.

Incline me to constant adoration and thanksgiving.

Pray in me and through me.

Let me live in you and keep me in this union always.
-  Pope John Paul II


I, (name), a faithless sinner, renew and ratify today in your hands, O Immaculate Mother, the vows of my Baptism; I renounce forever Satan, his pomps and works; and I give myself entirely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom, to carry my cross after Him all the days of my life, and to be more faithful to Him than I have ever been before.
In the presence of all the heavenly court, I choose you this day for my Mother and Queen. I deliver and consecrate to you, as your slave, my body and soul, my goods, both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my good actions, past, present, and future; leaving to you the entire and full right of disposing of me, and all that belongs to me, without exception, according to your good pleasure, for the greater glory of God, in time and eternity. Amen.
-  St. Louis Marie de Montfort
