Prayers to the
Blessed Virgin Mary

 

HAIL MARY

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

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. Amen.

HAIL HOLY QUEEN

Hail, holy queen, mother of mercy, 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 weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, O 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. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God. That we may be worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen.

MAGNIFICAT, MARY'S SONG OF PRAISE

Filled with the Holy Spirit, Elizabeth cried out: Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb, and Mary said:

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord and my spirit exults in God my Savior for He has looked with kindness on His lowly handmaid. All ages will call me blest.

The Almighty God has done great things for me, and holy is His name. His mercy reaches from age to age on those who fear His name.

He has shown great strength with His arm and has scattered the proud of heart. He has cast down the mighty from their thrones and has raised up the lowly ones.

He has filled the hungry with good things; the rich are sent empty away. He has come to the help of Israel as He promised our Fathers of old.

ACT OF CONSECRATION TO THE 
IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY

I, N..., a faithless sinner - renew and ratify today in your hands, O Immaculate Mother, the vows of my Baptism; I renounce satan, his pomps and works; and I give myself entirely to Jesus Christ, the Lamb who was slain, to carry my cross after Him all the days of my life, and to be more faithful to Him that I have ever been before.

In the presence of all the heavenly court I choose you this day, for my Mother and Mistress. I deliver and consecrate to you, as your child, my body and soul, my goods, both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my good actions, past, present and future; leaving to you the entire and full right of disposing of me, and all that belongs to me, without exception, according to your good pleasure, for the greater glory of God, in time and in eternity. Amen.

OUR LADY OF THE MILLENNIUM

Mother of the Redeemer, with great joy we call you blessed. In order to carry out His plan of salvation, God the Father chose you before the creation of the world. You believed in His love and obeyed His word. The Son of God desired you for His Mother when He became man to save the human race. You received Hm with ready obedience and undivided heart.

The Holy Spirit loved you as His mystical spouse and He filled you with singular gifts. You allowed yourself to be led by His hidden and powerful action. On the eve of the third Christian Millennium, we entrust to you the Church which acknowledges you and invokes you as Mother.

To you, Mother of the human family and of the nations, we confidently entrust the whole of humanity, with its hopes and fears. Do not let it lack the light of true wisdom. Guide its steps in the ways of peace. Enable all to meet Christ, the Way and the Truth and the Life. Sustain us, O Virgin Mary, on our journey of faith and obtain for us the grace of eternal salvation. O clement, O loving, O sweet Mother of God and our Mother, Mary. Amen.
