tu honorificentia populi nostri,
tu advocata peccatorum.O Maria! O Maria!
Virgo prudentissima,
Mater clementissima,
ora pro nobis,
intercede pro nobis,
ad Dominum Iesum Christum.
You are all beautiful, Mary,
and the stain of original sin is not in you.
You are the glory of Jerusalem,
you are the joy of Israel,
you give honour to our people.
You are an advocate of sinners.O Mary,
Virgin most intelligent,
Mother most merciful.
Pray for us,
Plead for us,
To the Lord Jesus Christ.



Virgin most intelligent, Mother most merciful.

O Mary, prudent Virgin, ready with oil in your lamp, teach us how to be vigilant in our prayers and meditations as we await the coming of your Son Jesus. Always be our guide and teacher and let your benevolence be an example to us. Instil in our hearts the love for the Church and the Salvation of souls.

O, Virgin Mary, sun without blemish, we rejoice at the fact that in your Conception God conferred on you a gift that all the angels and saints together did not possessed. We thank and admire the great liberty of the Most Holy Trinity that granted you this privilege. Intercede for us to correspond to divine grace without ever abusing it. Hail Mary.

Lord God you prepared a worthy dwelling place for your Son by the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin; grant, we pray, that as you preserved her from all stain of sin in your foreknowledge of His death, so we, by her intercession, may come to you with pure hearts. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
