Remember, most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who
fled to your protection,
implored your help
and sought your intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence, I fly to 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
hear and answer me. Amen.
St. Bernard of Clairvaux
