During a Retreat...

Well during another rather recent retreat I went for there was an image of the late Pope John Paul II and a Latin Prayer that no one around was really familiar with. The Prayer is as follows..."Totus Tuus ego sum et omnia mea Tua sunt. Accipio Te in mea omnia." There is actually 1 more sentence to the prayer and it is as follows... "[Praebe mihi cor Tuum, Maria.]" What does it mean in English?

"I belong to you entirely and all that I possess is yours. I take you into everything that is mine. Give me your heart, Mary."

Hmm... and Latin is supposed to be a dead language.
