PRAYERS TO OUR LADY

(For the 'Hail Mary' (Ave María) see ' PRAYERS ALL CATHOLICS SHOULD KNOW' above.)
Hail Holy Queen,
  Mother of mercy;
hail our life, our sweetness and our hope!
To thee do we cry,
  poor banished children of Eve.
To thee do we send up our sighs
  mourning and weeping in this vale of tears.
Turn then, most gracious Advocate,
  thine eyes of mercy towards us.
And after this our exile show unto us
  the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!
 
V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Salve Regína,
  mater misericórdiæ;
vita, dulcédo et spes nostra, salve!
Ad te clamámus,
  éxsules fílii Hevæ.
Ad te suspirámus
  geméntes et flentes in hac lacrimárum valle.
Eja ergo, Advocáta nostra, illos tuos
  misericórdes óculos ad nos convérte.
Et Jesum, benedíctum fructum ventris tui
  nobis post hoc exilium osténde.
O clemens, O pia, O dulcis Virgo María!.

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 prayers and our petitions,
  but in your mercy
  hear and answer them.
Amen.
Memoráre,
  O piíssima Virgo María,
non esse audítum a sæculo,
  quemquam ad tua curréntem præsídia,
  tua implorántem auxília,
   tua peténtem suffrágia,
  esse derelíctum.
Ego tali animátus confidéntia,
  ad te, Virgo
  Vírginum, Mater, curro.
Ad te vénio,
  coram te gemens
  péccator assísto.
Noli, Mater Verbi,
  verba mea despícere;
  sed audi propítia
  et exáudi.
Amen.
