Catholic Prayers‎ > ‎


O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known 
that anyone who fled to thy protection, 
implored thy help, 
or sought thine 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, 
despise not my petitions, 
but in thy mercy 
hear and answer me.
