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 with this confidence, I fly unto you, O
Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you I come,
before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O
Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my
petitions, but in your mercy hear and answer me.
|Hail, Holy Queen
queen, mother of mercy, hail our life, our
sweetness, and our hope! To you do we cry,
poor banished children of Eve. To you do we
send up our sighs, mourning and weepingin this vale
of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate,
your eyes of mercy towards us; and after this our
exile, show to us the blessed fruit of your womb,
Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

Let us pray.
O God, whose only-begotten
Son, by His life, death, and resurrection, has
purchased for us the rewards of eternal life; grant,
we beseech You that, meditating upon these
mysteries, in the most holy Rosary of the Blessed
Virgin Mary, we may both imitate what they contain,
and obtain what they promise. We ask this
through the same Christ our Lord.
|Prayer to Our Lady of
Virgin Mother of God, your
honor we glorify your aid we constantly implore,
your miraculous ikon we venerate, you who are the
hope of the world, despise not our petitions in our
necessities but deliver us from all harm.

affliction, consoler of the sorrowful, encourage us
ever onwards and grant unity to all Christians,

|Prayer In Spiritual Wants
O Mother of Perpetual Help,
with the greatest confidence I come before thy
sacred Picture in order to invoke thine aid.
Thou hast seen the wounds which Jesus has been
pleased to receive for our sake; thou hast seen the
Blood of thy Son flowing for our salvation; thou
knowest how thy Son desires to apply to us the fruit
of His Redemption. Behold I cast myself at thy feet,
and pray thee to obtain for my soul the grace I
stand so much in need of. O Mary, most loving of all
mothers, obtain for me from the heart of Jesus, the
source of every good, this grace
(here mention it). O
Mother of Perpetual Help, thou desirest our
salvation far more than we ourselves; thy Son has
given thee to us for our Mother; thou hast thyself
chosen to be called Mother of Perpetual Help. I
trust not in my merits, but in thy powerful
intercession; I trust in thy goodness; I trust in
thy motherly love. Mother of Perpetual Help, for the
love thou bearest to Jesus, thy Son and my Redeemer,
for the love of thy great servant Alphonsus, for the
love of my soul, obtain for me the grace I ask from
|Prayer In Temporal Wants
O Mother of perpetual Help,
numerous clients continually surround thy holy
Picture, all imploring thy mercy. All bless
thee as the assured help of the miserable; all feel
the benefit of thy maternal protection. With
confidence, then, do I present myself before thee in
my misery. See, dear Mother, the many evils to which
we are exposed; see how numerous are our wants.
Trials and sorrows often depress us; reverses of
fortune and privations are grievous, bring misery
into our homes; everywhere we meet the cross. Have
pity, compassionate Mother, on us and our families;
especially in this my necessity (here mention it).
Help me, O my Mother, in my distress; deliver me
from all my ills; or if it be the will of God that I
should suffer still longer, grant that I may endure
all with love and patience. This grace I expect of
thee with confidence, because thou art our Perpetual
