The Memorare

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known
that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help or sought your intercession,
was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence,
we fly unto you,
O Virgin of virgins, our Mother!
to you we come, before you we stand,
sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not our petitions,
but in your mercy hear and answer us.
