Blessed Virgin Mary
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 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

Hail, holy 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.

     V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God
     R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

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 Perpetual Help

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.

Our Mother, our aid in difficulties, comforter in affliction, consoler of the sorrowful, encourage us ever onwards and grant unity to all Christians, renew fervor, obtain forgiveness for sinners, perseverance for the just, salvation for the dying, and grant eternal glory to the souls in purgatory!

Our Lady of Perpetual Help, pray for us!

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary!  that never was it known that any one who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, and sought they intercession, was left unaided.  Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother!  To thee I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.  O Mother of the Incarnate Word, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.


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 thee.


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 Help.
