The Memorare

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known, that anyone who fled to Thy protection, implored Thy help, or sought Thy intercesion was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto Thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to Thee do I come, before Thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in Thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

Pour forth we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts; that we, to whom the incarnation of Christ, Thy 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.

Hail holy Queen, Mother of mercy, 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 the valley 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 God.

R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.




My souls magnifies the Lord

And my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour;

Because He has regarded the lowliness of His handmaid;

For behold, henceforth all generations shall call me blessed;

Because He Who is mighty has done great things for me,

And holy is His name;

And His mercy is from generation to generation

On those who fear Him.

He has shown might with His are,

He has scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.

He has put down the mighty from their thrones,

And has exalted the lowly.

He has filled the hungry with good things,

And the rich He has sent away empty.

He has given help to Israel, His servant, mindful of Hi mercy

Even as He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his posterity forever.


Hail, bright star of ocean,

God’s own Mother blest,

Ever sinless Virgin,

Gate of heavenly rest.

Taking that sweet Ave

Which from Gabriel came,

Peace confirm within us,

Changing Eva’s name.

Break the captives’ fetters,

Light on blindness pour,

All our ills expelling,

Every bliss implore.

blessed virgin looking heavenward.jpg

Show thyself a Mother;

May the Word Divine,

Born for us thy Infant,

Hear our prayers through thine.

Virgin all excelling,

Mildest of the mild,

Freed from guilt, preserve us,

Pure and undefiled.

Keep our life all spotless,

Make our way secure,

Till we find in Jesus,

Joy forevermore.

Through the highest heaven

To the Almighty Three,

Father, Son, and Spirit,

One same glory be. Amen.


Tota Pulchra Es



You are all beautiful, Mary,

And the original stain [spot] (of sin) is not in you.

You are the glory of Jerusalem,

You are the joy of Israel,

You give honor to our people.

You are an advocate of sinners.

O Mary,

Virgin most intelligent,

Mother most merciful.

Pray for us, plead for us,

To the Lord Jesus Christ.


Tota pulchra es, Maria.

Et macula originalis non est in Te.

Tu gloria Ierusalem.

Tu laetitia Israel.

Tu honorificentia populi nostri.

Tu advocata peccatorum.

O Maria, O Maria.

Virgo prudentissima.

Mater clementissima.

Ora pro nobis.

Ad Dominum Iesum Christum.
