HAIL MARY, OUR HOPE
O Lady—Our Lady—You are of all the most lovely, the entire Church calls you and greets you, "Our Hope." You therefore who are the Hope of All, be my Hope too. It is St. Bernard who calls you, "The whole reason of my hope;" and he says of you, "Even the one whose need is desperate can hope in you." In like manner I too can say: O Mary, you are mine—you can save those who are in desperate need. In you I put all my hope.Evening Sigh: Mary, Mother of God, pray to Jesus for me.
To be Said Each Day to Obtain Mary's Powerful Patronage
I bow in reverence before you, O Great Queen, and I thank you for the great graces you have given me until now, but especially because you have saved me from the punishments of hell which I have deserved so many times.
I love you, Most Lovely Lady, and because I love you so much I promise to be your faithful servant always, and to do all I can to make you loved by others, In you I place all my hopes, all my salvation.
O Mother of Mercy, accept me for your servant and shield me under your mantle; because you are great and powerful with God deliver me from all temptations, or better still get me the grace to conquer them even until death.
From you I ask for the true love of Jesus Christ; through you I hope to die a good death. O My Mother, I pray you by the love you have for God to give me your help at all times, but most of all at the last moment of my life; do not leave me until you see me safe in Heaven blessing you and singing your mercies for ever. Amen. This is my hope. So let it be.
