The Miraculous Medal Prayer

O Virgin Mother of God, Mary Immaculate, we dedicate and consecrate ourselves to you under the title of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.  May this Medal be for each one of us a sure sign of your affection for us and a constant reminder of our duties toward you.  Ever while wearing it, may we be blessed by your loving protection and preserved in the grace of your Son.

O Most powerful Virgin, Mother of our Savior, keep us close to you every moment of our lives.  Obtain for us, your children, the grace of a happy death; so that, in union with you, we may enjoy the bliss of heaven forever.  Amen.

Prayer for Entrusting the Church to Mary, Mother of God

O Mother of all peoples; you know all their sufferings and their hopes.  You maternally feel all their struggles between good and evil, between the light and the darkness which shake the world.  Receive our cry, directed in the Holy Spirit straight to your Heart and, with the love of the Mother and Handmaid of the Lord, embrace the individuals and peoples which most look for this embrace, together with the individuals and peoples to whose tust you attend in a particular way.  Take the entire human family under your maternal protection.  With outflows of affection, O Mother, we entrust it to you.  May the time of peace and liberty approach for all, the time of truth, justice and hope.  Amen.

Prayer to Our Lady of Lourdes

O ever Immaculate Virgin, Mother of mercy, health of the sick, refuge of sinners, comforter of the afflicted, you know my wants, my troubles, my sufferings; look with mercy on me.

By appearing in the Grotto of Lourdes, you were pleased to make it a privileged sanctuary, whence you dispense your favors; and already many sufferers have obtained the cure of their infirmities, both spiritual and corporal.

I come, therefore, with complete confidence to implore your maternal intercession.  Obtain, O loving Mother, the grant of my requests.  Through gratitude for your favors, I will endeavor to imitate your virtues, that I may one day share your glory.



Remember, O 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 unto you, O Virgins 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 your mercy hear and answer me.  Amen.

Sweet Mother, I place this cause in your hands (3x).

Hail, Holy Queen (Salve Regina)

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope.  To you do we cry, poor banished children of Eve.  To you do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.  Turn then, most gracious advocate, your eyes of mercy toward us, and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus.  O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
