Hail Mary, full of grace...

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known
that any one 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.
(Memorare: St. Bernard of Clairvaux 1090-1153

O Mary, Queen of the holy Angels - Pray for us!

Hail Mary, full of grace...

Holy Mother of God
We beg you to hear our prayer
Make our hearts overflow with Divine grace
and resplendant with heavenly wisdom
Render them strong with your might
and rich with virtue
Pour down upon us the gift of mercy
so that we may obtain pardon of our sins
Help us to live in such a way
as to merit the glory and blessings of Heaven.
May this be granted us by your Son Jesus Christ
who exalted you above the angels,
crowned you Queen,
and has seated you with him forever on his throne.
(Mary Our Queen: St. Anthony of Padua 1195-1231)

O Mary, Queen of the holy Angels - Pray for us!

Hail Mary, full of grace...

August Queen of Heaven, sovereign Mistress of the Angels,
who did receive from the beginning, the mission and the
power, to crush the serpent’s head,we beseech you to send
your holy angels, that under your command and by your
power,they may pursue the evil spirits, encounter them on
every side,resist their bold attacks, and drive them hence into
the abyss of woe. Most holy Mother, send your angels to
protect us.
All ye holy angels and archangels, help and defend us. Amen.

(Regina Angelorum: A Bernadine Sister in 1863 was shown in
spirit the vast desolation caused by the devil throughout the
world, and at the same time she heard the Blessed Virgin
telling her that it was true, hell had been let loose upon the
earth; and that the time had come to pray to her as Queen of
the Angels and to ask of her the assistance of the heavenly
legions to fight against these deadly foes of God and of men.
"But my good Mother," she replied, "you who are so kind,
could you not send them without our asking?" "No," Our Lady
answered, "because prayer is one of the conditions required
by God Himself in obtaining favors." Then the Blessed Virgin
communicated this prayer, bidding the Sister to have it
printed and distributed)

O Mary, Queen of the holy Angels - Pray for us!

Hail Mary, full of grace...

Reign, O Mother and Queen by showing us the paths of
holiness and by guiding and assisting us that we may never
stray from it. In the heights of Heaven you exercise your
primacy over the choirs of angels who acclaim you as their
Queen and over the legions of saints who delight in beholding
your dazzling beauty.

So too, reign over the entire human race,
above all by opening the path of faith to those who do not yet
know your Divine Son.

Reign over the Church, which acknowledges and extols your
gentle dominion and has recourse to you, as a safe refuge
amid the calamities of our day.

Reign over our minds, that they may seek only what is true;
over our wills that they may follow solely what is good
over our hearts that they may love nothing but what you
yourself love.

Reign over individuals and over families as well as all societies
and nations. Over the assemblies of the powerful
the counsels of the wise as over the simple aspirations of the

Reign in the streets and in the squares in the cities and the
villages in the valleys and in the mountains in the air, on land
and on the sea and hear the pious prayers of all those who
recognize, that yours is a reign of mercy in which every
petition is heard, every sorrow comforted every misfortune
relieved, every infirmity healed and in which, at a gesture
from your gentle hands, from death itself, there arises smiling

Obtain for us, that all who now in every corner of the world
acclaim and hail you Queen of Heaven and Our Lady of the
Angels may one day in heaven, enjoy the fullness of your
kingdom in the vision of your Divine Son, who, with the Father
and Holy Spirit lives and reigns forever and ever
