The Memorare Prayer
Remember, 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 to you, Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To you I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions,
but in your mercy hear and answer me.
