- Pray for nine consecutive days three Our Fathers, Hail Marys and Glorias with the short prayer “Praised at all times the Blessed Sacrament” and three salves with the short prayer “Mary Help of Christians, pray for us.” He prays the Lord Christian and which is its Help.
- The Sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist. The Christian lives united to Christ, to the Help of Christians and the Church through the sacraments.
- I recommend you to promise your gift or your personal work to sustain apostolic works, preferably salesianas. The Christian feels the Help encourages you to be an apostle and sustain apostolic works of the Church of Christ.

Teach me, O Mary Help of Christians, to be sweet and good in all the events of my life; in disappointments, in the neglect of others in the insincerity of those in whom I believed, in disloyalty of those in whom I trusted.
Help me to forget myself to think about the happiness of others; to hide my little sufferings so that I am the only one who suffers.
Teach me to take advantage of them, to use them so that softened me, I do not harden or embitter me; make me patient, not irritable; I make my clemency broad and not narrow and despotic. Let no one be less good, less sincere, less kind, less noble, less holy for being my traveling companion on the path to eternal life. Amen.
