    Hear the petition of the poor; spurn

not the wounds and the groans of the


    Let our devotion and our sighs be

carried through thee to the presence of

the Creator, for we are not ourselves

worthy of being heard because of our

evil deserts.

    O powerful Mistress of heaven and

earth, wipe out our trespasses and our


    Destroy our wickedness and depravity.

    Raise the fallen, the debilitated, and

the fettered. Loose the condemned.

Repair through thyself the transgressions

of our immorality and our vices.

Bestow  upon us through thyself the

blossoms and ornaments of good actions

and virtues. Appease for us the Judge

by thy prayers and thy supplications.

Allow us not, for mercy’s sake, to be

carried off from thee among the spoils of

our enemies. Allow not our souls to be

condemned, but take us to thyself for

ever under thy protection.

    We, moreover, beseech and pray thee,

O holy Mary, to obtain, through thy

potent supplication, before thy only Son,

that is, Jesus Christ, the son of the living

God, that God may defend us from

all straits and temptations. Obtain also

for us from the God of Creation the

forgiveness and remission of all our sins

and trespasses, and that we may receive

from Him further, through thy

intercession, the everlasting habitation

of the heavenly kingdom, through all

eternity, in the presence of the saints

and the saintly virgins of the world;

which may we deserve, may we enjoy,

*in saecula saeculorum.  Amen.
