From the Collection of SVD Prayers, VADEMECUM (2009)

L. Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,

A. 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, we fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, our Mother. To you we come, before you we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in your mercy hear and answer us. Amen.

L. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.

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

L. Let us pray. All powerful, eternal God, by the cooperation of the Holy Spirit you made ready the body and soul of the glorious virgin mother Mary to be a fit dwelling place for your Son. As we celebrate her memory with joy, grant that through her motherly intercession we may be preserved from evil in this world and from eternal death. Through the same Christ our Lord.

A. Amen.
