The Hail Mary Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou amongst
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.
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 intercession,
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, do not reject my petition, but graciously hear and answer
The Magnificat My soul glorifies the Lord, my spirit rejoices in God, my Saviour.
He looks on his servant in her lowliness; henceforth all nations will call me blessed.
The Almighty works marvels for me. Holy his name! His mercy is from age to age,
on those who fear him. He puts forth his arm in strength and scatters the proud-hearted.
He casts the mighty from their thrones and raises the lowly. He fills the starving
with good things, sends the rich away empty. He protects Israel, his servant, remembering
his mercy, the mercy promised to our fathers, to Abraham and his sons for ever.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, send now Your Spirit over the earth. Let the
Holy Spirit live in the hearts of all nations, that they may be preserved from degeneration,
disaster and war. May the Lady of All Nations, the Blessed Virgin Mary, be our advocate.

of your heart, O Mary, descend on all people. We love you immensely. Impress on our
hearts true love so that we may long for you. O Mary, gentle and humble of heart,
remember us when we sin. You know that all people sin. Grant that through your most
pure and motherly heart, we may be healed from every spiritual sickness. Grant that
we may always experience the goodness of your motherly heart, and that through the
flame of your heart we may be converted. Amen.

Prayer to Our Lady of Knock
Our Lady of Knock, Queen of Ireland, you gave hope to our people in a time of distress
and comforted them in sorrow. You have inspired countless pilgrims to pray with confidence
to your divine Son, remembering His promise: "Ask and you shall receive, Seek and
you shall find". Help me to remember that we are all pilgrims on the road to heaven.
Fill me with love and concern for my brothers and sisters in Christ, especially those
who live with me. Comfort me when I am sick or lonely or depressed. Teach me how
to take part ever more reverently in the holy Mass. Pray for me now, and at the hour
of my death. Amen.
“In danger, in anguish, in uncertainty,” he says, “think of Mary, call on Mary. May
she never be far from your lips, from your heart; and thus you will be able to obtain
the help of her prayer, never forget the example of her life. If you follow her,
you cannot go astray; if you pray to her, you cannot despair; if you think of her,
you cannot be mistaken. If she sustains you, you cannot fall; if she protects you,
you have nothing to fear; if she guides you, do not tire; if she is propitious to
you, you will reach the goal …”
