Prayers to Mary
Remember, most loving Virgin Mary, never was it heard that anyone who turned to you for help was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, though burdened by my sins, I run to your protection for you are my mother. Mother of the Word of God, do not despise my words of pleading but be merciful and hear my prayer. Amen.
Hail, Holy Queen
Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To you we cry, the children of Eve; to you we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this land of exile. Turn, then, most gracious advocate, your eyes of mercy toward us; lead us home at last and show us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus: O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary. Amen.
Act of Consecration to Mary
O my Queen, O my Mother, I love you and give myself to you. I give to you this day my eyes, my ears, my mouth, my heart, my whole self. Since I am yours, keep me and guard me as your child forever. Amen.
The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
R: and she conceived of the Holy Spirit. (Hail Mary..)
Behold the handmaid of the Lord:
R: be it done unto me according to your word." (Hail Mary..)
And the Word became flesh
R: and dwelt among us. (Hail Mary..)
Pray for us, O holy Mother of God,
R: that we may become worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray.
R: Pour forth, we beseech You, O Lord, Your grace into our hearts, that we to whom the incarnation of Christ, Your Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by His passion and cross be brought to the glory of His resurrection, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
