O MARY, Our Lady of the Airways, my Heavenly Mother,
I place myself under your guidance and protection
upon this journey which I am about to undertake,
and I ask that with your heavenly aid and upon the Winds of the Wind
that this earthly journey may be brought to safe landing.
May I also ask that upon the Wings of Prayer,
and through your heavenly intercession that my last journey in this life
may end at the Eternal Airport of Life Everlasting with you
and your Divine Son in Heaven.
