The Memorare


Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,

that never was it known

that anyone who fled to thy protection,

implored thy help, or sought thine intercession

was left unaided by thee.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee,

O Virgin of virgins, my mother;

to thee do I come, before thee I stand,

sinful and sorrowful.

O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions,

but in thy clemency hear and answer me.
