The Hail Holy Queen (Salve Regina)

(Graphic images re-print permission from CatholicTradition.org)

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy.

Hail, our life, our sweetness, and our hope!

To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve,

To thee do we send our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears.

Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us.

And after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of they womb, Jesus.

O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God (V).

That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ (R).

Amen Amore',

I love this prayer to Our Lady. Her love and example have brought me so much closer to Our Lord Jesus Christ.
