Missal Prayer - to Mary
Prayers to the Blessed Virgin Mary
O Mary, Virgin and Mother most holy,
behold, I have received your most dear Son,
whom you conceived in your immaculate womb,
brought forth, nursed and embraced most tenderly.
Behold him at whose sight
you used to rejoice and be filled with all delight;
him whom, humbly and lovingly,
once again I present
and offer him to you
to be clasped in your arms,
to be loved by your heart,
and to be offered up to the Most Holy Trinity
as the supreme worship of adoration,
for your own honor and glory,
and for my needs and for those of the whole world.
I ask you therefore, most loving Mother,
entreat for me the forgiveness of all my sins
and in abundant measure the grace
of serving him more faithfully in the future,
and at the last, final grace,
so that with you I may praise him
for all the ages of ages.
Hail, Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with you;
blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners
now and at the hour of our death.
